On May 9, 2008, the fifth in a series of continuing education seminars featuring presentations by the Chief of Healthcare Fraud Prosecutions in the Criminal Division of the United States Attorneys Office for the Eastern District of New York, as well as the Chief of the Civil Division of Healthcare Fraud in the Eastern District, was held at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. Other presenters included the Chiefs of Civil and Criminal Healthcare Fraud from the Southern District of New York.
The seminars' originator, Robert P. Borsody, counsel at Phillips Nizer, held the first of the series in September of 2002. In addition to featuring the presentations of the four Assistant US Attorneys, who at that time were Chiefs of the Civil and Criminal Healthcare Fraud of both the Southern and Eastern Districts, the seminar included the then US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Mr. James Comey, as a luncheon speaker.
Mr. Borsody also chaired and presented the second subsequent similar seminar in September of 2003. It featured a luncheon presentation by Roslynn Mauskopf who was then the United States Attorney for the Eastern District and has since been appointed to the federal bench.
Mr. Borsody similarly chaired and presented at the 2004 seminar where David N. Kelly, the US Attorney for the Southern District made the luncheon presentation. Additionally, there were presentations from the Director of the Special Projects Unit of the New York State Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and a representative from the Office of Inspector General in Washington, D.C.
Mr. Borsody also chaired and presented at the 2005 seminar, which was identical to the other seminars but also had another luncheon presentation by Ms. Mauskopf.
