Andrew Schilling was quoted in the Law360 article, "Attys React to Supreme Court's Wartime Limits to FCA Ruling," on May 27, 2015.
The Justice Department has been aggressively using the FCA to target banks and mortgage companies for actions leading up to the mortgage crisis. Its novel interpretation of the WSLA had given the government a hook to look back earlier in time for cases than it otherwise could have under the FCA. Today’s decision is significant because it restores the traditional time limits of the FCA, and more of the government’s claims in these crisis-era cases will be time-barred by the application of the Act’s 6-year statute of limitations and 10-year statute of repose.
