Crowell & Moring has issued its seventh-annual “Litigation Forecast 2019: What Corporate Counsel Need to Know for the Coming Year.” 

The section focusing on government contracts, Bid Protests Enter A Shifting Landscape,” provides an overview of how the process of protesting the awarding of a federal contract might dramatically change in 2019.

Also of interest to contractors, the article, DOJ: Putting Limits On Guidance,” which outlines how The DOJ’s Brand Memo may give health care contractors a new avenue of defense in FCA litigation, but its interpretation is still unclear.

The Forecast further explores the developing legal, regulatory, and technology developments affecting a wide range of companies in twelve areas of law: antitrust, corporate, cybersecurity, e-discovery, environmental, government contracts, health care, intellectual property, international trade, labor and employment, torts, and white collar.

Be sure to follow the conversation on social media with #LitigationForecast.

It’s not every day that a contractor recovers nearly four times the value of its initial contract, especially when there’s a potential conflict of interest in the mix – but that is exactly what happened in Appeal of Phoenix Data Solution.  On June 21, 2018, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (Board) awarded Phoenix Data Solutions LLC, formerly known as Aetna Government Health Plans (AGHP), over $11 million in claimed settlement costs plus interest arising from the Tricare Management Activity’s (TMA) termination for convenience and subsequent deemed denial of AGHP’s claim related to performance under a regional TRICARE managed care support contract.
