In Allison Engine Co., Inc. v. United States ex rel. Sanders, No. 07-214, the United States Supreme Court will consider whether the False Claims Act imposes liability on false claims made to parties other than the government so long as the claim is paid with government funds. The case is expected to resolve a conflict among the lower courts with far-reaching implications for companies that work as subcontractors on government projects or otherwise indirectly receive government funds.
