Webinar - U.S. v. Sulzbach: Government Theories, Potential Defenses, and Lessons Learned

September 26, 2007 • Webinar


General Counsel and Corporate Compliance Officers May Now Face New Individual False Claims Liability Risks

Should the False Claims Act be applied to Corporate Counsel individually, when her annual certifications of company compliance are allegedly untrue?

Last week, the Department of Justice sued former Tenet General Counsel Christi Sulzbach individually for a series of False Claims Act violations, alleging she falsely certified corporate compliance in CIA-required Annual Reports, knowing at the time of certification that Stark violations existed at a single Tenet hospital. In this concise and focused presentation, C&M Panelists will discuss:

    • The facts and circumstances leading to the Sulzbach Complaint
    • The government’s False Claims Act theory of liability against Sulzbach as well as potential defenses
    • What you should be doing now to minimize this new potential risk of individual liability

Who Should Participate:

    • General/Corporate Counsel
    • Compliance Officers
    • Chief Executive Officers
