4th Circ. Wartime Tolling Case Cited In Pa. Kickbacks Suit
Law360, New York (April 1, 2013, 11:14 PM EDT) -- A doctor sought to protect his whistleblower claims against several medical providers over an alleged kickback scheme from dismissal on Friday in Pennsylvania federal court, citing a recent Fourth Circuit decision that extends the statute of limitations for False Claims Act cases filed during times of war.
Cardiologist Tullio Emanuele is pursuing a whistleblower complaint against Hamot Medical Center, Medicor Associates Inc., Flagship Cardiac Vascular Thoracic Surgery and several doctors, accusing them of violating anti-kickback law by creating sham medical directorships to which only Medicor and Flagship physicians would be appointed and submitting false claims for unnecessary medical procedures.
