National Law Review: House Considers ‘Commonsense’ False Claims Act Reforms

Attorneys from the Polsinelli, PC law firm write in the National Law Review about last month’s House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice’s hearing on the False Claims Act. 

“Those in favor of reform touted the hearing as a first step toward commonsense changes and improvements targeted at promoting compliance and rooting out and preventing fraud in the first instance.” 

The authors note that former Deputy U.S. Attorney General Larry Thompson, “citing a 2013 report by the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform … suggested that a better and more even-handed approach would be to incentivize compliance in a real and meaningful way by allowing companies that achieve and maintain superior compliance programs to obtain reductions in penalties or other consequences “when inevitable wrongdoing does occur.”
