This past January, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) celebrated the 25th anniversary of the 1986 Amendments to the False Claims Act (FCA). The DOJ used this time to tout its use of the FCA in recovering more than $30 billion, and to describe its future enforcement efforts. In a recent speech, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder stated that the DOJ is committed to “aggressively utilizing” the FCA to “eradicate the scourge of fraud from some of government’s most critical programs.”
