  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) July 10, 2017 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, has announced today that Angela Pazzaglia, PhD, Senior Economist, Bates White will speak at a 2-hour webcast entitled Statistical Evidence in False Claims Act Cases: Identifying Opportunities and Legal Challenges LIVE Webcast.

    Event Summary:
    With the growing number of lawsuits brought under the federal False Claims Act (FCA), the dispute over the use of statistical evidence to prove liability in FCA cases continues to spark interest among industry leaders, professionals, and litigators. The plaintiffs in these cases, including both the government and qui tam relators, routinely argue that the use of statistical evidence to prove liability should be allowed to avoid difficult and prolonged litigation. A number of recent court decisions have addressed the issue and reached different conclusions; thus, the battle over statistical evidence and how this evidence may be used in FCA cases will likely continue. It is therefore imperative to carefully consider the significant ramifications of employing statistical evidence in all stages of FCA litigation to avoid any legal risks and pitfalls.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of Statistical Evidence in False Claims Act Cases and will help the audience better understand all the important aspects of this significant topic. Speakers will also offer best practices in identifying opportunities and legal challenges while ensuring compliance with applicable laws.

    Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
    Use of Statistical Evidence in False Claims Act Cases
    Opportunities for FCA Plaintiffs and Potential Defenses
    Recent Court Decisions
    Best Practices and Risk Mitigation Strategies
