Judge dismisses $30 million whistleblower suit against Huron

The lawsuit accused Huron Consulting Group of causing a New York hospital to file fraudulent Medicare and Medicaid claims

Huron Consulting Group may be guilty of “bad practice,” but it didn’t help to defraud Medicare and Medicaid out of millions of dollars, according to U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff, who dismissed a whistleblower suit against the company on Tuesday.

Associates Against Outlier Fraud, which is owned by former Huron accounting consultant Steven Landgraber, filed the False Claims Act lawsuit in 2009, alleging that Huron caused a New York hospital to receive more than $30 million in inflated payments from Medicare and Medicaid.
