The United States chose not to intervene in Thrower’s False Claims Act suit, but later filed a motion to dismiss the case.  The district court denied the motion to dismiss because it found the US had failed to meet its burden of demonstrating a valid governmental purpose related to the dismissal and because it failed to fully investigate the allegations of the amended complaint.  This decision holds that the district court’s order is not appealable as did not resolve important questions separate from the merits. Also the interests involved in the decision not to dismiss the case were not important enough to justify an immediate appeal.
