Government Dismissals of Qui Tam Cases Under Section 3730(c)(2)(A)
The Granston Memo Today


An FBA Qui Tam Section Zoom Roundtable


*** NOVEMBER 18, 2020 | 12:30pm ET ***

In early 2018 the U.S. Department of Justice issued what became known as the "Granston Memo," which set guidelines on when federal prosecutors should exercise their authority under U.S.C. 31 § 3730(c)(2)(A) to seek dismissal of False Claims Act cases brought by qui tam relators. Since that time, courts have disagreed on the standard for evaluating government motions to dismiss -- and legislators have floated bills that would limit prosecutors' power to bring such motions.

This Zoom Roundtable will highlight the views of distinguished government and private litigators on these developments and on their implications for FCA practice. In particular, we expect to cover the following topics:

-- How the Granston memo has been implemented in practice
-- The growing circuit split on how to evaluate (c)(2)(A) motions
-- Proposed legislation that could limit the DOJ's authority under (c)(2)(A)
-- Protecting the interests of all sides of the FCA community

This event is organized by the Qui Tam Section of the Federal Bar Association.
