Qui tam whistleblower case under False Claims Act settles in courthouse as trial set to begin.


In New Orleans on the week of the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, our firm prepared to try a “whistleblower” case under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.  The defendants, who were alleged to have fraudulently obtained a Hurricane Katrina relief contract, settled the case just before jury selection, on terms that our firm has agreed not to publicize.

We were proud and fortunate to have as our client a service-disabled veteran who endured significant health problems to see the case to its successful conclusion. By our willingness to do the work needed to take such cases to trial, we believe we obtain the best results for our clients.

Our firm is experienced in representing individuals in pursuing whistleblower claims under the federal and state False Claims Acts, the  SEC Whistleblower and CFTC Whistleblower Programs, and in the IRS Whistleblower Program.
