The September 2008 issue of the AGC Legal Brief highlights the use of the False Claims Act (FCA) against contractors and subcontractors. The article, written by Attorney Patrick Facca, presents an overview of the FCA and outlines some of the risks associated with the statute. Mr. Facca notes that use of the FCA has been increasing on federal projects and federally funded project. Mr. Facca also includes information about proposed legislation (HB-4773), which would create a Michigan False Claims Act.
