Ninth Circuit: US ex rel. Integra Med Analytics v. Providence Health & Services

The brief discusses the purpose and history of the public disclosure bar, and argues that 1) not everything on the internet is “news media,” 2) the bar does not preclude relators from moving forward when they base their claims on data analysis and industry expertise because the fraud has not been publicly disclosed, 3) even if a disclosure had occurred, outside relators can qualify as original sources when they rely on their independent analysis to substantiate their allegations.
