Taft attorneys Barbara A. Duncombe and Erin R. Davis authored the article “Watching for Government Outreach,” which was published on Oct. 23 by National Defense, the business and technology magazine of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA). The article discusses whether the Department of Justice overreached in a False Claims Act case.
