Cincinnati law firm Helmer Martins announces that attorneys James B. Helmer, Jr. and Erin M. Campbell’s article, “Jury Instructions for False Claims Act Cases,” has been published as the lead article in the just released Volume 84, No. 4 of the University of Cincinnati Law Review (2016).

This article provides False Claims Act practitioners with concise model jury instructions, based on instructions approved of or offered in False Claims Act trials. These instructions fill a void, as no other source for accurate complete False Claims Act jury instructions previously existed.

Updates to these model False Claims Act jury instructions will be published in future editions and supplements of Mr. Helmer’s False Claims Act treatise: False Claims Act: Whistleblower Litigation. The Seventh Edition is now available for purchase from its publisher, Bloomberg BNA.

This publication is Mr. Helmer’s fourth published article in the University of Cincinnati law review focusing on the False Claims Act. His other articles on the False Claims Act published by the University of Cincinnati Law Review are:
“False Claims Act: Incentivizing Integrity for 150 Years for Rogues, Privateers, Parasites and Patriots, 81 U. CIN. L.REV. (2013); with co-author, Julie W.

The University of Cincinnati College of Law and the University of Cincinnati Law Review have storied histories. Established in 1833, the University of Cincinnati College of Law is the 4th oldest continuously operating law school in the country. William Howard Taft, the only man to ever serve as both President of the United States and Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court is both a graduate of the College of Law and former Dean. Now the College is known around the world for its Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights. And the work of its Lois and Richard Rosenthal Institute for Justice and Ohio Innocence Project continues to make a tremendous impact by freeing unjustly convicted persons from Ohio prisons. The University of Cincinnati Law Review dates back to 1927. The journal was the first to be published by an Ohio law school.
