Whistleblower Defense Sidebar

Vorys has successfully represented False Claims Act defendants in Courts of Appeals throughout the country, including the United States Supreme Court.  In the Allison Engine case Vorys obtained a directed verdict for our client in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.  After trial, the relator appealed to the Sixth Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court subsequently heard the case.  In a unanimous 9-0 decision, the Supreme Court ruled in our client’s favor, significantly restricting the scope of liability under the False Claims Act.
