On Friday, October 5, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit overturned an $82.6 million judgment against our client, German-based Fresenius Medical Care Holdings Inc., and its subsidiaries Renal Care Group, Inc., and RCG Supply Company. The qui tam action, in which the United States intervened, was brought by former employees alleging the submission of false claims to Medicare stemming from claims for reimbursement for diabetic supplies.
