Briefs were filed yesterday in the Supreme Court case Allison Engine Co., Inc. v. United States ex rel. Sanders (Docket no. 07-214). This case will decide whether corporations and individuals who receive government contracts are legally required by the False Claims Act to "present" their claim for payment to a government agency, or if they can evade liability under the FCA by routing these claims through a surrogate, such as a subcontractor.
The Petitioners’ and Respondents’ briefs were filed yesterday, as well as Amicus briefs, including for the Respondents Amicus Curiae briefs from Senator Grassley and Taxpayers Against Fraud. (Thanks to TAF for these briefs).
