Qui Tam Attorney Rory Delaney

Rory Delaney graduated from the University of Cambridge, England with a degree in law in 1990.  Mr. Delaney worked as a solicitor for the global law firm of Freshfields, Bruckhaus, Deringer in their London and Paris offices between 1992 and 1994 and subsequently Steptoe & Johnson, Rakisons in London until 1996. That year he became a barrister of the Honorable Society of Lincoln's Inn and concentrated his practice on criminal litigation, defending serious crimes and prosecuting on behalf of the Crown and Her Majesty's Customs and Excise.

In the years 1996 to 2001, Mr. Delaney conducted over seventy jury trials, covering tax evasion, importation offenses, computer crimes and armed robbery and just before he left England, he completed the successful prosecution of ten defendants in a $30 million drug importation conspiracy. In 2001, Rory and his American family, moved to Boston and, after taking the Massachusetts Bar in July 2002, was admitted to practice.

Since practicing in the United States, Mr. Delaney has concentrated on False Claims Act litigation, white collar crime and complex commercial disputes. He has conducted jury trials in the federal and state’s court and tried dozens of contested arbitrations, including cases before the American Arbitration Association and the National Association of Securities Dealers.

In January 2017, Mr. Delaney was co-counsel in a month-long trial against a chain of skilled nursing facilities.  United States ex rel. Angela Ruckh v. CMC II, LLC et al. M.D. Fl. (No. 11-1303) Rory filed the case in 2011 and the matter was unsealed after less than a year. There followed six years of active litigation until the case finally made it to a jury trial. The trial itself revolved around Ms. Ruckh’s allegations of upcoding of claims to Medicare and the failure to provide care to Medicaid residents in the Defendants’ chain of Florida nursing facilities. After four weeks of evidence, the jury took just two days to return a verdict in favor of the whistleblower, Angela Ruckh. The judgment in the sum of $347,000,000 was a triumphant vindication of Nurse Ruckh’s bravery and selfless public service. Under the False Claims Act, Ms. Ruckh is entitled to up to 30% of the recovery.

Mr. Delaney argued the appeal against conviction of United States v. Anthony Burnett (08-1224) before the Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. In another case before the First Circuit, Mr. Delaney wrote the original argument in the appeal of United States v. Alvarez-Cuevas (03-2387) concerning a point of first impression under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. In a published decision the Court of Appeals overturned the appellant’s sentence and remanded the case back to the district court in Puerto Rico.
