ORDER - Plaintiff Rodney Heath ("Rodney") is a backup fire investigator with the Defendant Indianapolis Fire Department ("IFD"). Rodney has filed a qui tam action pursuant to the False Claims Act ("FCA"), alleging that IFD submitted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency ("FEMA") false statements in connection with a grant application and related payment requests. Rodney's son Quinn Heath ("Quinn") alleges that after Rodney filed this action, IFD retaliated against Quinn by failing to hire him as a firefighter with the Department. Presently pending before the Court is IFD's Motion for Summary Judgment. [Filing No. 78.] For the reasons that follow, the Court denies IFD's Motion as to Rodney's claims and grants IFD's Motion as to Quinn's claim. The Court DENIES IFD's Motion for Summary Judgment as to Rodney Heath's claims under 31 U.S.C. § 3720(a)(1)(B) and 31 U.S.C. § 3720(a)(1)(A) and GRANTS IFD's Motion for Summary Judgment as to Quinn Heath's claim under 31 U.S.C. §3730(h). [Filing No. 78.] No partial judgment shall issue at this time, and the Court requests that the Magistrate Judge confer with the parties regarding possible resolution of the remaining claims. (See Order.) Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 4/24/2017.(APD)
