Publisher: Connecticut Law Tribune
January 25, 2018

Stan Twardy was quoted in an article, "'This Is a Good Thing': CT Attorneys Support Justice Dept.'s FCA Memo," published by the Connecticut Law Tribune. The article discusses a memo directing U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyers to seek dismissal of qui tam False Claims Act cases they deem "meritless." As noted in the article, the memo from Michael Granston, director of the commercial litigation branch at DOJ's Fraud Section, is generally supported by the Connecticut legal community. Twardy told the Connecticut Law Tribune that the DOJ's recommendation presents "such a sea change to what we had in the past." He continued, "It will have a significant impact on the system because there are many cases in which the government has not intervened in the past and which they will now move forward to have those cases dismissed."
