Gil Soffer, a partner in the Firm's White Collar Criminal and Civil Litigation Practice, was quoted in Report on Medicare Compliance regarding a case in which a Nevada judge ordered the government to pay a physician $280,000 in legal fees after a failed health fraud prosecution, calling some of it “frivolous.” Mr. Soffer says that, “Generally, it takes a great deal before the court will say, especially in criminal cases, that the government has acted frivolously. After all, the government doesn’t get an indictment until after presenting the case to a grand jury” (“Court’s Rare Jab at Prosecutors: Pay Doctor’s Legal Fees for ‘Frivolous’ Prosecution,” August 27, 2007).
