Fraud Case Dismissed Against Client of the Firm
Posted on Firm News August 4, 2017 by Robert Nicholson
A federal civil fraud case filed against a medical services provider client of the Firm has been dismissed by the plaintiff after the Firm provided the plaintiff with a detailed demand letter setting forth the deficiencies in the plaintiff’s case. The Firm also put the plaintiff on notice of the Firm’s intent to seek its defense fees if the case proceeded and the case was dismissed by the Court. Among other defects in the case addressed in the demand letter was that the plaintiff failed to plead the case with the required particularity to plead fraud in federal courts, and that there was published medical literature supporting the Firm’s clients actions.
After receiving the demand letter, but before the time for a motion to dismiss to be filed, the plaintiff voluntarily dismissed the case, saving the Firm’s client substantial legal expenses.
