EDLA District Court: U.S. ex rel. LaCorte v. Merck & Co.

The Court does not have the power to review terms of a settlement for fairness, adequacy or reasonableness, since the parties have already agreed to the terms of the settlement. Additionally, there is no statutory basis for reducing a relator’s share to below 15% since the relator did not conduct criminal activity, violate the False Claims Act.
