Seventh Circuit: U.S. ex rel. Proctor v. Safeway

The brief discusses the proper interpretation of the False Claims Act’s three distinct knowledge standards, the legislative history and congressional intent behind the standards, when and how to consider a defendant’s reasonable interpretation of an ambiguous statute, and the inapplicability of the Supreme Court’s decision in Safeco v. Burr to the knowledge standards under the False Claims Act.
