Application of 31 U.S.C. § 3302(b) to Settlement of Suit Brought by the United States


The requirement in 31 U.S.C. § 3302(b) that money received for the Government be deposited in the United States Treasury does not apply in a case in which the United States asserted no claim for money damages or penalties, and will receive no money from a health care program managed for private plaintiffs.
