2015 Advertising and Promotion Conference - The First Amendment, the False Claims Act and the Implications of Amarin
Oct 2 2015
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel, Washington, D.C.
Buchanan Shareholder Linda Pissott Reig will participate in the 2015 Advertising and Promotion Conference as a panelist on the "First Amendment, the False Claims Act and the Implications of Amarin," breakout session on Friday, October 2, 2015.
As a result of the Caronia decision, and now this August’s Amarin decision - which found that restrictions on truthful, non-misleading promotion raised fundamental First Amendment issues - the panelists will explore whether similar arguments can be made with respect to False Claims Act cases involving company representatives who “caused” a false claim to be submitted for reimbursement through, for example, dissemination of truthful medical literature that mentions an off-label use for a product.
