April 4, 2018

Jay Holland was honored to present at the prestigious 2018 Jacobus tenBroek Disability Law Symposium in Baltimore, Maryland on March 22, 2018. 

In his presentation, Jay addressed the intersection between disability rights law and Qui Tam cases under the False Claims Act, and how disability rights advocates can use the powerful tool of the False Claims Act in disability related cases.  Jay not only addressed the basics of the law, but the nuances as well, and how disability cases can often involve claims of Medicare and Medicaid fraud by unscrupulous health care providers. There was a very lively exchange and robust questions from the attendees. 

The symposium drew disability rights advocates from all parts of the country. The day consisted of plenary sessions and workshops provided an opportunity for attendees to examine subjects such as law enforcement and disability, discrimination against employees with disabilities and disparities in healthcare for minorities. These session were presented by distinguished law professors, practitioners and advocates. Mark Riccobono, president of the National Federation of the Blind, presented a keynote address during the symposium.
