U.S. ex rel. Summers v. LHC Group, Inc., 09-5883, concerned a challenge to the district court's judgment denying a plaintiff's motion under Fed. R. of Civ. Proc. 59(e) to alter an earlier judgment of dismissal, in the plaintiff's suit against her former employer, a corporation engaged in the business of providing in-home health services to patients insured by Medicare, pursuant to the False Claims Act.  In affirming the judgment, the court held that violations of the procedural requirements that qui tam actions be filed under seal, imposed on qui tam plaintiffs under the False Claims Act, preclude plaintiff from asserting qui tam status.
