False Claims Act Litigation

  • Key member of the Berg & Androphy team that won a settlement with American Grocers in a qui tam & employment retaliation action in United States District Court. The case involved the alteration of expiration dates on food products sent to American troops in the Middle East. The settlement netted the client and the government about $13.2 million.
  • Key member of the Berg & Androphy team that represented one of the nine whistleblowers and won a settlement with Eli Lilly in a civil qui tam & employment retaliation action in U.S. District Court. The case involved off-label marketing of the drug Zyprexa. This civil settlement netted the government and all whistleblowers about $750 million. The government also received an additional $600 million in criminal fines.
  • Key member of the Berg & Androphy team that won a settlement with King Pharmaceuticals in a qui tam & employment retaliation action in United States District Court. The case involved the underpayment of Medicaid rebates, false claims, and best price violations. This settlement netted the client and government about $119 million.
  • Key member of the Berg & Androphy team that won a settlement with Rotech Healthcare, Inc. in a qui tam & employment retaliation action in United States District Court. Rotech paid $2 million to settle civil charges that it engaged in false or fraudulent conduct in billing Medicare for durable medical equipment. The government declined intervention. This settlement netted the client and government about $1.78 million. The negotiated settlement amount was a reflection of Rotech’s stock price of 34 cents per share at the time of settlement, down from $21 in early 2004 when the suit was filed.
