Trump Pick for AG to Be Scrutinized for Views on False Claims Act Enforcement

Scott Stein (Chicago), Doreen Rachal (Boston), and Naomi Igra (San Francisco) have authored an article for Bloomberg Law regarding Attorney General nominee William Barr’s views on the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  As discussed in the article, Barr has previously called the qui tam provisions “patently unconstitutional.”  The article, a copy of which can be accessed here, discusses the basis for Barr’s views and how his confirmation may amplify DOJ’s recent efforts to move for dismissal of qui tam cases that do not serve the federal government’s interests.
