On Wednesday, November 13, 2013, at noon Dentons’ DC office will host the ABA PCLS Contract Claims and Disputes Resolution Committee’s monthly meeting, which will feature a panel discussion about fraud counterclaims – a hot topic which our blog has followed very closely over the last year. My colleague, Justin Ganderson, will moderate this panel comprised of Judge Marian Horn (Court of Federal Claims), J. Reid Prouty (Department of Justice), Thomas Barrett (KBR, Inc.) and Paul Debolt (Venable LLP). The panel will focus on current trends related to fraud counterclaims before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the impact of fraud counterclaims on a variety of topics including litigation tactics and scheduling, the scope of discovery, settlement negotiations, forum selection (i.e., the Boards of Contract Appeals versus the U.S. Court of Federal Claims) and the decision whether or not to appeal the denial of a certified claim. I expect this panel to be very informative and quite interesting.
