Pursuant to the New Jersey False Claims Act, the Government & Healthcare Fraud Section conducts civil investigations and prosecutions related to fraudulent requests for State funds. The Section initiates cases and also acts on information obtained through qui tam suits filed by whistle-blowers in federal and state courts. The Section also represents the State and Division in investigations and litigation involving high impact investor and consumer protection issues.
