WSJ Editorial Board: “False Claims Falsehoods”

The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board called on judges to “sanction the false claimers” who were responsible for the 11 False Claim Act (FCA) lawsuits that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) asked to dismiss last week.

The DOJ said the company behind the suits, the National Health Care Analysis Group, was created for the “sole purpose” of filing copy-and-paste-style whistleblower lawsuits under the FCA by using false pretenses to find information on other companies. The group, which consisted of “investors and former Wall Street investment bankers,” retained what the Editorial Board called “trial-lawyer barons such as Mark Lanier” who “can smell money from the next solar system” to pursue the suits.

According to their filing, the DOJ said they spent 1,500 hours investigating the claims before seeking the dismissals.
