In a long-anticipated decision–Cochise Consultancy Inc. v United States, ex rel. Hunt–the Supreme Court increased from 6 to 10 years the statute of limitations period for most whistleblowers bringing suit under the False Claims Act. The ruling greatly expands the potential exposure False Claims Act defendants face going forward.

But perhaps just as important, the decision provides a unanimous pronouncement by the Supreme Court that both intervened and non-intervened whistleblower cases are treated the same. This may prove useful for whistleblowers down the road in responding to the oft-made defense argument that non-intervened cases have less merit or should be viewed with skepticism.
