Contract – False Claims Act – Student Loan Corporations – ‘Arm of the State’ Analysis (access required)

U.S. ex rel. Jon H. Oberg v. Kentucky Higher Educ. Student Loan Corp. A district court did not use the correct test when analyzing whether student loan corporations formed by four different states may be sued in a qui tam action alleging they defrauded the U.S. Department of Education; the 4th Circuit vacates a lower court’s dismissal of the suit on the ground that the corporations were “state agencies” not subject to suit under the False Claims Act, and remands for the district court to apply an “arm of the state” analysis.
