Q. What common law statutes define hospice fraud?
A: THis is a broad question but I'll try and address is under both Federal and California law. In California, hospice fraud is generally addressed under broader statutes that deal with fraud and healthcare fraud rather than specific "common law statutes." The relevant laws and regulations include both state and federal statutes. Here are some of the key legal provisions that might be applied in cases of hospice fraud:

Federal Laws

False Claims Act (FCA):

The FCA imposes liability on individuals and companies who defraud governmental programs. It includes penalties for submitting false claims to Medicare and Medicaid, which is pertinent to hospice care fraud.

Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS):

The AKS prohibits the exchange (or offer to exchange), of anything of value, to induce or reward the referral of federal healthcare program business. This is relevant to hospice providers who might engage in kickbacks to get referrals.

Health Care Fraud Statute:

This federal statute criminalizes schemes to defraud any healthcare benefit program, including Medicare and Medicaid.

California State Laws

California False Claims Act (CFCA):

The CFCA is similar to the federal FCA and imposes liability for making false claims for payment from the state government, including Medi-Cal (California’s Medicaid program).

California Insurance Code Section 1871.4:

This statute makes it illegal to submit false or fraudulent claims for payment of a healthcare benefit, relevant to private insurance claims.

California Penal Code Section 550:

This section addresses various forms of insurance fraud, including knowingly presenting false or fraudulent claims for the payment of a healthcare benefit.

Business and Professions Code Section 17200 (Unfair Competition Law):

This section prohibits unlawful, unfair, or fraudulent business acts or practices. This can be used to address fraudulent business practices by hospice care providers.

In practice, hospice fraud cases often involve a combination of federal and state statutes, as well as common law theories. The prosecution may be pursued by federal or state authorities, and private individuals may also bring civil suits under these laws.

I hope this helps!

Q. Motion for summary judgement. Request for judicial notice process
A: In California, when submitting a request for judicial notice in conjunction with a motion for summary judgment, you generally follow these steps:

1. **Prepare the Request**: Your request for judicial notice should be a separate document from the motion for summary judgment. It must clearly identify each item for which notice is requested.

2. **Cite the Authority**: Under the California Evidence Code, particularly sections 452 and 453, specify the type of material you are asking the court to notice (e.g., facts and propositions that are not reasonably subject to dispute and are capable of immediate and accurate determination by resort to sources of reasonably indisputable accuracy).

3. **Attach Supporting Documents**: Include copies of the documents or materials for which you are requesting judicial notice. These materials might include public records, government documents, or any other matter that can be accurately and readily verified.

4. **File and Serve**: File the request for judicial notice with the court and serve it on all parties involved in the litigation. This should be done at the same time you file and serve your motion for summary judgment.

5. **Include in Motion**: Reference the request for judicial notice in your motion for summary judgment, explaining how the items for which you seek notice support the arguments or facts presented in the motion.

6. **Court Consideration**: The judge will consider the request and determine whether to grant judicial notice of the items. If granted, the noticed facts are accepted as indisputably true for the purposes of the motion.

7. **Hearing**: Typically, the request for judicial notice will be addressed during the hearing on the motion for summary judgment.

This process is an integral part of ensuring that the materials you reference in your legal arguments are considered by the court without requiring further proof.

Q. My son was jumped at school by a couple kids wearing masks. He has a busted nose and lip. What legal options do we have?
A: I'm sorry to hear about your son's situation. In California, you have several legal avenues you might consider:

1) Criminal Charges: Since the incident involved physical violence, you can report it to the police. They can investigate and potentially charge the perpetrators with assault or battery.

2) School Liability: You may have a claim against the school if it failed to provide a safe environment for your son. California schools have a duty to supervise and protect students from harm, and failure to do so can be considered negligence.

3) Civil Lawsuit: If the attackers are identified, you could file a civil lawsuit against the perpetrators or their guardians for damages. This can help cover any medical bills, therapy costs, and pain and suffering your son may be experiencing.

4) Restraint Order: If the perpetrators are known and there is an ongoing threat, you might consider seeking a restraining order to prevent further harm.

5) School District Action: Beyond legal actions, you can also request that the school or school district take immediate and appropriate disciplinary action against the students who committed the assault.

It's important to document everything related to the incident, including medical records, any communication with the school, and any other relevant information. Consulting with a lawyer who specializes in personal injury or educational law could provide you with specific guidance tailored to your situation.
