John T. Boese speaks with American Lawyer about the False Claims Act

Washington, DC of counsel John T. Boese is quoted in an American Lawyer article about serial whistle-blower Joseph Piacentile, whose lawsuits have returned more than US$1b to the U.S. Treasury over the course of fifteen years. Commenting on the government's obligation to investigate each qui tam claim despite its legitimacy, Mr. Boese said "The government can't know the merits just by looking at the [whistle-blower] complaint. The government will [often] only know the allegations don't have merit after its issued subpoenas."
