The ‘New’ New Jersey False Claims Act: It Was Born to Run
On Jan. 7, 2008, the New Jersey Legislature joined then 20 other states and the District of Columbia in passing its version of a civil false claims act. The New Jersey False Claims Act, which is modeled on the Federal False Claims Act, allows whistleblowers (often referred to as “Qui Tam Relators”) to blow-the-whistle on those businesses and individuals who submit false or fraudulent claims to the State of New Jersey.
In an article published by the Legal Intelligencer, Marc S. Raspanti and Pamela C. Brecht provide an in-depth analysis of the new New Jersey False Claims Act, and a comparison to the federal False Claims Act.
