Whistleblower/Qui Tam Litigation

The False Claims Act is the single most effective tool U.S. taxpayers have to recover the billions of dollars stolen through fraud every year.

Under the False Claims Act, those who knowingly submit, or cause another person to submit, false claims for payment of government funds are liable for up to three times the government’s damages plus civil penalties of $5,500 to $11,000 for each false claim.

The False Claims Act contains qui tam provisions, which allow people with evidence of fraud against the government to sue on behalf of the government. People who sue under the FCA are called “relators” or “whistleblowers,” and are eligible for 15 to 30 percent of the amount recovered.

Rosenberg Martin Greenberg attorneys have extensive experience representing whistleblowers in qui tam and False Claims Act litigation which has led to the recovery of millions of dollars for the government and appropriate awards for the whistleblower.

Chad Curlett is a member of Taxpayers Against Fraud and The Taxpayers Against Fraud Educational Fund, a nonprofit, public interest organization dedicated to combating fraud against the government and protecting public resources through public-private partnerships.

TAFEF pursues its mission by working to maintain the integrity and advance the effectiveness of whistleblower reward and private enforcement provisions in federal and state laws, including the federal and state False Claims Acts and the federal tax, securities, and commodity futures trading laws. Specifically, TAFEF works to:

  • Inform and educate the general public, the legal community, government officials, the media, and other interested groups about incentivized whistleblower programs such as the False Claims Act as well as the SEC, IRS and CFTC whistleblower programs;
  • Explain the process, history and context of meritorious whistleblower lawsuits filed under the FCA, SEC, IRS, and CFTC whistleblower programs;
  • Advance public and government support for whistleblower cases;
  • Document the public policy value and the intellectual and legal foundation of incentivized whistleblower programs, and especially their qui tam provisions.
