Indiana Federal District Court denies defendant’s motion to dismiss plaintiff’s qui tam action for FCA violations
Defendant, a regional grocery chain, began a generic discount rewards program similar to that of Walmart. Doe, a pharmacist employed with the chain, filed a qui tam action accusing the store of overcharging the government by not billing the same U&C price it was charging the customers enrolled in the discount program. The complaint avers that the higher price violated the federal False Claims Act and the Illinois Whistleblower and Protection Act.
