Bates White Manager Angela Pazzaglia is participating in a webcast on October 9: “Statistical Evidence in False Claims Act Cases: Maximizing Opportunities and Overcoming Challenges.” The False Claims Act (FCA) has become one of the Department of Justice’s major tools in fighting fraud, and statistical sampling methods and extrapolation have gained prevalence as methodologies to establish damages and liability. However, the issue of statistical evidence’s appropriateness in proving FCA liability is still uncertain due to lack of law or formal guidance. Dr. Pazzaglia and her co-presenter, James C. Shah, from Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLP, cover a number of topics in this live webcast:
- Overview of statistical evidence in FCA cases
- Recent litigation trends and notable court decisions
- Opportunities and challenges
- Strategies for use in litigation
