United States v. Sarshad
Thomas H. Bienert, Jr., Luis A. Feldstein, and Christi McGowan scored a major victory by securing a not-guilty verdict on all charges against their client (Sarshad) after a seven-week trial in the United States District Court for the Central District of California. The 75-count indictment alleged Sarshad and three other doctors, had billed Medicare for respiratory treatments that were never administered or were done so in violation of Medicare regulations. The 12-member jury unanimously acquitted Sarshad, deciding that the government failed to prove Sarshad had any knowledge of the questionable billing practices.
