    This eighth edition of James B. Helmer, Jr.’s treatise provides a comprehensive, up-to-date picture of False Claims Act case law and best practices for litigating FCA cases. Helmer, whose representation of Jack Gravitt in 1986 catalyzed a revitalization of the FCA and the use of qui tam suits by whistleblowers, has argued an FCA case before the Supreme Court and has testified before Congress concerning updates to the statute. His decades of work with the FCA have given him unparalleled insights and expertise.

    Practitioners will benefit from this treatise’s thorough guidance on litigating FCA qui tam suits, including special considerations for discovery, preparing the case, common defenses, common motions, and attorney’s fees. The detailed model jury instructions are particularly useful. Below are some of the important features of this book:

    • Tracks changes to FCA amendments and how they impact a practitioner’s litigation strategies;
    • Contains a detailed Table of Contents that allows the reader to quickly find the text, analysis, and caselaw for specific issues;
    • Offers critical historical context with two opening chapters that discuss the evolution of the FCA;
    • Contains an Appendix of several hundred pages of sample pleadings and other useful documents and a fully searchable CD Rom for the text and Appendix; and
    • Details every Supreme Court opinion and its impact and discusses different treatment of the Act based upon the Federal Circuit where the case is brought. The book also contains material on the numerous states which have enacted their own copy of False Claims Acts.
