David Ruskin Provides Insight to Bloomberg Law - "Illinois AG Seeks to Dismiss Dozens of Whistleblower Cases"

An article published by Bloomberg Law discusses how the Supreme Court Wayfair decision could affect dozens of lawsuits filed by prolific whistleblower Stephen B. Diamond. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has filed a series of motions to dismiss these cases, alleging they have minimal financial and legal relevance for the state.

State and Local Tax attorney, David Ruskin, stated, "The judges should rule in support of the law which provides that the attorney general has unfettered control in these qui tam matters and if Lisa Madigan decides to come in and dismiss the lawsuits, she can. And unless Diamond can show some fraud, collusion, or bad faith between the state and the tailors, a judge should not deny any of these motions to dismiss."

The full article, "Illinois AG Seeks to Dismiss Dozens of Whistleblower Cases," was written by Michael J. Bologna and published by Bloomberg Law on December 24, 2018 for its subscribers.
