Lincoln’s Law Blog (LLB) offers dynamic, continuously updated news and statistics on the False Claims Act. In addition to analysis offered by FCA practitioners, we are attempting something that we believe has never before been done — offering close to “real time” updated FCA statistics, including
recoveries sorted by jurisdiction and industry/subject matter. In addition to a running “ticker” of recoveries to date (found on our home page), we offer a jurisdictional “heat map” showing the most active circuits, as well as a breakdown by subject matter of the recoveries in each jurisdiction to date.
LLB provides an advance look at the aggregate numbers that formerly went unreported until each October, when the Department of Justice publishes its annual recoveries report. Our numbers are gathered from press releases, news articles, and public dockets. Of course, while every effort is made to ensure the accuracy and
completeness of these statistics, LLB relies on public data sources and we cannot ensure the accuracy or completeness of the underlying data. For more on the methodology we follow in generating statistics, see this description. Check back with us
frequently to watch the ticker go up over the coming months, and in October, we will offer a FCA year-in-review, analyzing the data and comparing our numbers to DOJ’s report.
