An extensive analysis of the new Kansas False Claims Act written by Fleeson Gooing’s Dan Lawrence and Steve Robison is the lead article in the October 2010 issue of the Journal of the Kansas Bar Association. The article, entitled “Introducing the Kansas False Claims Act: A Primer,” discusses the legislation which took effect in April, 2010.

Mr. Robison’s and Mr. Lawrence’s article describes the legislative history of the Act and explores the meaning of its provisions in light of federal caselaw construing analogous terms of the federal False Claims Act.
