US v. Galatis, 15-1322

Convictions of conspiracy to commit healthcare fraud, 18 U.S.C. section 1349, healthcare fraud, section 1347, and money laundering, section 1957, are affirmed over defendant's contentions that the district court committed reversible error by: 1) allowing defendant's associate to testify that the associate had pled guilty to one count of healthcare fraud arising from the same scheme, without sua sponte giving a limiting instruction; 2) permitting certain lay and expert witness testimony, which Galatis characterizes as concerning the meaning of terms in the applicable Medicare regulations; and 3) denying defendant's preferred jury instruction as to the meaning of a particular certification requirement in the relevant Medicare provisions.
