Sacramento Bee

State Attorney General Kamala Harris on Thursday announced a $241 million settlement – the largest recovery in the history of California’s False Claims Act – with Madison, N.J.-based Quest Diagnostics Inc.

Harris said the settlement was crafted to recover illegal overcharges to the state’s medical program for the poor. The attorney general’s office called Quest the state’s biggest provider of medical laboratory testing.
