Elizabeth Eberle is a civil litigation partner at Miner, Barnhill & Galland who specializes in complex litigation. She recently wrapped up a 13-year-long consumer protection case against pharmaceutical manufacturers that brought in more than $100 million for one of the firm’s government clients.

Betty practices in a variety of areas, including consumer protection and false claims act cases, civil rights, predatory lending and cases under the federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act.

Prior to law school, Betty spent years working in Africa and Europe. Just prior to joining the firm, she taught international law at Omsk State University in Omsk, Russia.

The following is a summary of the areas in which Betty has concentrated her practice.

  • Whistleblower Litigation & Consumer Protection Law

    Betty represented the Attorneys General of five states in “Average Wholesale Price” litigation against dozens of pharmaceutical manufacturers under state Medicaid fraud statutes, state False Claims Acts and consumer protection laws. The litigation recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for the states’ Medicaid programs.

  • Privacy Law

    Betty successfully tried to verdict a case under the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act. The verdict was publicized as having a “huge impact” on law enforcement practices, including the implementation of new practices at the Wisconsin Department of Justice regarding instruction to law enforcement agencies on the proper treatment of drivers’ confidential information.

  • Discrimination, Employment & Civil Rights

    Betty has represented both individuals and classes of employees in various employment discrimination claims, including claims based on age, disability, race and gender in federal and state courts, as well as in local agencies.

  • Predatory Lending Law

    Betty has represented individual consumers and organizational plaintiffs in lawsuits challenging predatory lending practices, which have led to large settlements in lawsuits brought in Illinois and California. In addition to litigating the predatory practices, the cases involved emerging issues surrounding the unconscionability of certain aspects of mandatory consumer arbitration agreements.

Community Service Activities

Betty is the Chair-Elect of the Board of the International Practice Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin. Previously, she was Treasurer of the Board of the Appellate Practice Section.
