As their states’ chief law enforcement officers AGs are enforcing state laws in wide-ranging areas including consumer protection, data privacy, antitrust, and environmental law, and they influence important state policies and laws affecting the high-technology, energy, and healthcare sectors.

The FCA also deputizes whistleblowers to bring fraud claims (called qui tam actions) on behalf of the United States. Why It Matters The most recent statistics published by DOJ confirm that the number of FCA suits and the size of monetary recoveries under the FCA continue to be ...
