Whistleblower’s Receipt of Report of Government’s Investigation of His Claims Ruled a Public Disclosure

Posted by Jaime L.M. Jones and Brenna Jenny

A decision earlier this month by the Central District of California that the public disclosure bar had been triggered marked an unusual ruling in which the court determined that a whistleblower whose allegations led to an administrative investigation may be precluded from sharing in the settlement funds due to the disclosure of the resulting report to the relator himself. United States ex rel. Swoben v. SCAN Health Plan, No. 09-cv-05013 (C.D. Cal. June 1, 2015).
