With the growing number of lawsuits brought under the federal False Claims Act (FCA), the dispute over the use of statistical evidence to prove liability in FCA cases continues to spark interest among industry leaders, professionals, and litigators. The plaintiffs in these cases, including both the government and qui tam relators, routinely argue that the use of statistical evidence to prove liability should be allowed to avoid difficult and prolonged litigation. A number of recent court decisions have addressed the issue and reached different conclusions; thus, the battle over statistical evidence and how this evidence may be used in FCA cases will likely continue. It is therefore imperative to carefully consider the significant ramifications of employing statistical evidence in all stages of FCA litigation to avoid any legal risks and pitfalls.
