It’s Déjà vu All over Again: Resetting the FCA Stats Tracker for FY 2018

It’s that time again; time to press the reset button and reflect on the past fiscal year’s FCA statistics. Fiscal Year 2017, which came to a close on September 30th, was a big year here at LLB as it marks the first year we were able to track FCA statistics for the entire year in real time. LLB has been through some changes since the last time we did this; just recently, we premiered our new custom date range tool on the data set for increased precision in your searches and today we premiered a new copy link feature. However, one thing has remained constant: our readership’s interest in FCA enforcement statistics. With that in mind, we now present to you a breakdown of our preliminary assessment of FY 2017.

Silver Linings for FY16: DOJ FCA Stats Tough on Pharma and Banks, but Defense Pipeline Narrowing

The Department of Justice released its annual FCA recovery statistics on Wednesday, touting over $4.7 billion in settlements and judgments for fiscal year 2016. Just after the numbers were released, on Lincoln’s Law Blog (LLB) we explored how these results compared to our projections, noting where our numbers deviated from DOJ’s and why. Now that the data sets have been updated and we have had a few days to reflect, today’s post takes a closer look at the numbers as a whole, how they fit into the big picture of FCA recoveries over the years, and what it could mean for FCA enforcement going forward.

How Could Something So Wrong Be So Right: LLB vs DOJ FCA Stats

Released just yesterday evening, DOJ’s annual FCA brag sheet for recoveries proclaimed a whopping $4.7 billion in civil FCA recoveries for FY 2016. That’s a full $1 billion more than LLB’s count in our inaugural year. How could our “polling” have been so wrong? Well, it turns out, it wasn’t. Despite first appearances, LLB’s stats were mostly on track with the DOJ reports – with one major exception that made all the difference.

False Claims Act Stats: Going Local—A Close-Up Look at FCA Recovery Geography

With the 2016 DOJ fiscal year at an end, we are hard at work identifying trends and piecing together the story of FCA enforcement across the nation over the last twelve months. Today, we take a look at how recoveries have varied on the local level, slicing our data to see which federal district court and U.S. Attorney jurisdictions have been the most active this year. Bear in mind as you read that although this data is grouped by district, these are not necessarily recoveries made in district court. Indeed, plenty of recoveries nationwide are made through settlements without ever setting foot inside the courtroom – in these instances, we locate those recoveries in the district of the U.S. Attorney’s office identified as involved in the investigation.
