Fraud Under The FCA

United States ex rel. Harris v. Bernard, 275 F. Supp. 2d 1, 6 (D.D.C. 2003). The FCA does not require proof of specific intent to deceive when a defendant presents false or fraudulent claims to the government. 31 U.S.C. § 3729(b); United States v. TDC Mgmt. Corp., Inc., 24 F.3d 292, 296 (D.C. Cir. 1994). An FCA plaintiff may also plead a claim under 31 U.S.C. § 3729(a)(1)(B), which provides a cause of action against anyone who “knowingly makes, uses, or causes to be made or used, a 35 false record or statement material to a false or fraudulent claim.” Section 3729 (a)(1)(B) attaches FCA liability to a defendant who prepares in support of a claim a statement that it knows to be a misrepresentation. United States ex rel. Totten v. Bombardier Corp., 380 F.3d 488, 500-01 (D.C. Cir. 2004).
