John T. Boese quoted in Daily Journal about the effect of an executive order on qui tam lawsuits

The Daily Journal article "Order Could Block Qui Tam Suits" notes that an executive order issued by President Obama to crack down on fraud, waste and abuse in federal programs may raise a jurisdictional hurdle for whistleblower lawsuits. Washington, DC litigation of counsel John T. Boese was quoted on how the order would affect potential qui tam lawsuits. Mr. Boese said, "This jurisdiction principle of 'public disclosure/original source' was developed by Congress to encourage qui tam suits yet avoid what Congress referred to as 'parasitic' suits."
