OPINION
_________________________

RONALD LEE GILMAN, Circuit Judge. Kenneth Dewayne Willis has been charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g). He seeks to dismiss the indictment on the grounds that the current federal prosecution constitutes double jeopardy and violates the collateral-estoppel doctrine because Willis has already been prosecuted in state court based on the same underlying conduct. The district court denied Willis’s motion to dismiss. For the reasons set forth below, we DISMISS Willis’s appeal for lack of appellate jurisdiction.

OPINION
_________________________

LARSEN, Circuit Judge. In this qui tam action, Dr. Gurpreet Maur accuses Dr. Elie Hage-Korban (“Korban”) of submitting false claims to Medicare for unnecessary cardiac testing and procedures, in alleged violation of the False Claims Act (FCA). See 31 U.S.C. § 3729(a)(1)(A)–(C), (G). The district court dismissed Maur’s complaint pursuant to the FCA’s public-disclosure bar, 31 U.S.C. § 3730(e)(4). Because we conclude Maur’s allegations are “substantially the same” as those exposed in a prior qui tam action and Maur is not an “original source” as defined in the FCA, we AFFIRM the district court’s dismissal.
