DePuy Petitions Supreme Court to Weigh in on FCA Pleading Standards Posted: 21 Mar 2018 07:14 PM PDT

Last year, the First Circuit reversed the dismissal of a False Claim Act (FCA) case brought against DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., holding that the district court had wrongly dismissed the relators’ complaint for failing to plead with particularity under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 9(b) (see post here). In February, DePuy, now known as Medical Device Business Services, petitioned the Supreme Court for review, arguing there is a growing circuit split on appropriate pleading standards in FCA cases.
