On November 3, 2020, Gilead Sciences Inc. filed suit in the Southern District of Florida Federal Court seeking damages from and injunctions against 58 defendants in South Florida for their part in an alleged scheme to defraud Gilead of approx 150 million dollars. The defendants are comprised of medical clinics, laboratories, pharmacies, and their owners, officers, and employees. The alleged scheme is complex and involves a lot of people participating in a widespread conspiracy, yet is exactly the type of convoluted scheme that regulators and insurance companies target. If the allegations are true, nearly 60 fraudulent operators will have to find another line of business.
A Civil Rico case ( Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) will be pursued by Gilead Attorneys’ )
SMG was the lead investigative company in assisting Gilead to bring this case to a successful conclusion. Judgments in excess of 100 million dollars will be sought against the defendant and companies in this case.
