U.S. Chamber files coalition amicus brief

July 07, 2022

The U.S. Chamber filed a coalition amicus brief urging Third Circuit to hold, in False Claims Act case, that allegedly false claims were not material as a matter of law where the undisputed evidence showed that the government investigated plaintiffs’ allegations but continued to pay defendant’s claims and failed to take any steps to recoup payments.

John P. Elwood, Christian D. Sheehan, and Jayce L. Born of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP and the U.S. Chamber’s Litigation Center served as co-counsel for the U.S. Chamber.
