Meyer v. Health Management Associations, Inc.
No. CACE 11-25334 (19) (Fla. 17th Cir. Ct.) and
United States ex rel. Paul Meyer v. Health Mgmt. Assocs., Inc., No. 11-62445-CIV (S.D. Fla.) The Firm represented a corporate compliance officer in a wrongful termination lawsuit under Florida’s Private-Sector Whistleblower’s Act against his former employer, a national healthcare corporation. After the Firm defeated the employer’s motion for summary judgment, the case was resolved amicably through a confidential settlement. In addition to that lawsuit, the Firm also brought a qui tam action under the False Claims Act against its client’s former employer. The United States later intervened in the qui tam action. This matter generated national media attention, including a segment on CBS News’ 60 Minutes entitled “The Cost of Admission” (first aired December 2, 2012).
