Bishop v. Wells Fargo, 15-2449

In a qui tam action under the False Claims Act (FCA) alleging that defendants defrauded the government within the meaning of the FCA by falsely certifying that they were in compliance with various banking laws and regulations when they borrowed money at favorable rates from the Federal Reserve's discount window, the district court's grant of defendants' motion to dismiss is affirmed where the banks' certifications of compliance were too general to constitute legally false claims under the FCA, and the relators have otherwise not sufficiently pleaded their claims under the FCA.
