Fostering Accountability When Government Programs Are Involved
The Federal False Claims Act is a far-reaching whistleblowers act with roots in the Civil War. Originally designed to address dishonesty on the part of private contractors providing goods and services to the federal government, it applies to numerous types of fraudulent and inappropriate claims for payment from the U.S. government or one of its agencies, departments or programs.
With its qui tam provision that enables a person initiating a case to share in the government’s financial award, the Federal False Claims Act puts the federal government’s interests into a special category of lawsuit designed to stimulate corporate accountability for illegal actions that cost the government. Highly publicized cases related to the Act include large judgments against pharmaceutical companies in recent years.
