Dismissal Affirmed!


On April 7, 2004, we told you about the Northern District of Illinois’ dismissal of a whistleblower’s case against Catholic Health Partners. On July 6, 2005, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the dismissal with prejudice. The appellate court found that the whistleblower did not show that any action by the Defendants caused an overpayment. The Court approved the lower court’s finding that it did not even have jurisdiction to hear the whistleblower’s allegations against Catholic Health Partners.

Catholic Health Partners was represented by David B. Honig and N. Kent Smith, of Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman.
