In the first half hour, Richard Renner interviews whistleblower attorney Reuben Guttman. Mr. Guttman has been counsel in some of the largest recoveries under the Federal False Claims Act, including the recent $1.6 billion settlement with Abbott Laboratories for its illegal marketing of antiepileptic medication Depakote to children and geriatric patients. They discuss how the False Claims Act is used to keep big pharmaceutical companies honest.
In the second half hour, Richard Renner and Stephen Kohn discuss “Rule # 1: Understand the Maze” from The Whistleblower’s Handbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Doing What’s Right and Protecting Yourself. Rule #1 helps explain how to find the law that protects you.
