Off-label Promotion Qui Tam Suits – a YouTube Video by HP&M’s John R. Fleder

October 24, 2008

Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C.’s John R. Fleder has now appeared in a Washington Legal Foundation “Legally Brief” YouTube video.  In the 6-minute video Mr. Fleder notes the recent increase in federal False Claims Act cases initiated by private whistleblowers based on alleged “off-label” use promotional activities involving pharmaceutical companies, and explains why recent court rulings have dismissed such cases, and cast doubt on the viability of any off-label use “qui tam” action.
