Goodell DeVries Obtains Dismissal of Qui Tam Action in Florida Federal Court

By: GDLD | 1.26.13 | Case Results

Thomas J. Cullen, Jr., representing Eisai, Inc., obtained an order granting a motion to dismiss a False Claims Act lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.  In United States of America, et al., ex. rel. Michael Keeler v. Eisai, Inc., the plaintiff claimed that Eisai violated numerous False Claims laws by engaging in off-label promotion of two drugs, providing kickbacks to health care providers, and falsely reporting pricing information. Through motions practice and oral argument, Goodell DeVries’ attorneys persuaded the Honorable Kathleen M. Williams that plaintiff’s claims were improperly pled and fatally unsubstantiated. She granted the Motion and dismissed the case with prejudice.
