Massive Medicaid fraud leads to moratorium in Miami, Broward

A state-wide program that funds costly treatment for low-income children who suffer from autism was dealt a blow this month when regulators put a hold on enrollment of new behavioral analysis therapists. Regulators blamed the moratorium on widespread fraud and overbilling by individuals and agencies who were supposed to be delivering this effective type of therapy to needy autistic children in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, and across Florida.

Fraudsters used shell companies, stole South Florida real estate

When it comes to fraud, some perpetrators are simply bolder than others. In South Florida, where fraud schemes on a grand scale are somewhat commonplace, it can take quite a bit to turn people's heads. However, a recent scheme uncovered in Broward County is certainly among the most brazen in the recent history of South Florida fraud cases.

Protecting your trade secrets in Florida

A trade secret is an important type of a business's intellectual property for which the laws of Florida afford protection. A trade secret can be a formula, a proprietary device, a recipe or even a list of clients. Anything that is proprietary to a business and that gives the business an advantage over competitors who do not possess the information or do not have the knowledge to use the information could be considered a trade secret. Theft of a trade secret in Florida could give rise to a business tort claim and possibly even criminal charges.
