Law Street Media is retracting an article posted Nov. 23 titled “False Claims Act Case Alleges Surgery Center Exceeded Licensing Limits.”
The article covered a complaint that accused Dr. Roger Khouri and Key Biscayne Surgery Center of fraudulent billing practices. Law Street’s story listed in error that the United States was an accuser; while the accuser was instead Mark V. Morsch, a relator bringing the allegations on behalf of the United States via a qui tam action. The defendants informed Law Street that the complaint does not reflect the knowledge of the billing practices possessed by the relator, a disbarred attorney. The case has since been sealed and original article has been removed.
