Sixth Circuit: US ex rel. Rahimi v. Rite Aid

The brief covers the history and policy reasons behind the public disclosure bar and original source exception, as well as the proper standards for applying both.  The brief urges the circuit court to reverse the district court’s holding that a relator can only be an original source if she discloses her allegations to the government before the public disclosure occurs, and to follow Supreme Court precedent which mandates that a relator need only notify the government of her allegations before she files her qui tam action in order to qualify as an original source.
