Sacramento Business Journal

Medical device maker Medtronic Inc. will pay $362,662 to be divided by 46 states under a settlement announced Friday by Sacramento law firm Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff LLP, which represented a whistleblower who started the case. “We are very proud to represent individuals who are brave enough to come forward to expose this kind of fraud — and assist the federal government and the states to expose fraud by medical device companies,” said J. R. Parker Jr., a partner at Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff. “This is what drives up the cost of health care.”
