False Claims Act Litigation

False Claims Act Litigation

Blowing the Whistle on False Claims

The False Claims Act of 1986 allows U.S. citizens (“relators”) and entities with evidence of fraud against federal programs or contracts to sue the wrongdoer on behalf of the U.S. government. The resulting “qui tam” lawsuit is filed under seal while the Justice Department investigates the allegations.

Filing suit as a whistleblower is typically a complex and expensive process that can tie up the plaintiff’s time for years to come, as most corporations have substantial resources to mount a defense. At the same time, the rewards from false claims act cases can be significant. Whistleblowers who prevail in their claims are eligible to receive 15% to 25% of the recovery amount, which can be as much as triple the government’s costs, plus penalties.
