We have been writing about the relator’s cert. petition in U.S. ex rel. ABLE v. US Bank, 16-130, since the earliest days of LLB, but today we say good-bye to that petition about the public disclosure bar because the Supreme Court denied cert, as the Solicitor General recommended. In other news, because the “ex rel.” might catch some readers’ eyes, we note that the Court also denied cert. in U.S. ex rel. Bauchwitz v. Holloman, 16-1185, a cert. petition we did not cover because despite being a qui tam, it did not raise FCA issues.
