    Polsinelli Wins Summary Judgment in Favor of Client Rural Metro Corporation in False Claims Act Case

    On Jan. 10, 2019, Am Law 100 firm Polsinelli won summary judgment on behalf of its client, Rural/Metro Corporation (“Rural Metro”), in the United States District Court for the District of Arizona. The False Claims Act case is known as Ralph Vassallo, et. al. v. Rural/Metro Corporation, et al.

    Rural Metro is a large provider of ambulance transport services. In 2014, the company switched its billing and coding systems. Relators argued that certain mistakes during the implementation phase of the new systems purportedly led to incorrect claims being billed to the Medicare Program, and that the decision to transition to and maintain the new billing system led to the submission of “false claims” to Medicare. Rural Metro vigorously – and successfully – defended this case.
