Eighth Circuit -- Neal Roberts v. United States

U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 11-2054 U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas - Little Rock [PUBLISHED] [Bye, Author, with Smith and Colloton, Circuit Judges]
Civil case - False Claims Act. The district court did not err in finding relators were entitled to a portion of the government's recovery under the False Claims Act, as the defective pricing claim the government brought was related to relators' suit; the court rejects the idea that Rule 9(b)'s heightened pleading requirement plays a part in determining whether a relator is entitled to share in settlement proceeds resulting from a qui tam action in which the government elects to intervene. Judge Colloton, dissenting.
