Protecting The Rights Of Whistleblowers
A qui tam action is a lawsuit brought by a private citizen against a person or company. The plaintiff in a qui tam case alleges that the defendant illegally breached a contract with the government or violated government regulations. The plaintiff in a qui tam action is entitled to a percentage of damages recovered on behalf of the government. The person who brings the action is known as a “whistleblower.”
Naturally, stepping out on a limb to bring a lawsuit on behalf of the government is a risky venture. Rewards can be substantial in a successful qui tam lawsuit. Foote, Mielke, Chavez & O’Neil, LLC, can guide you while protecting your rights as you bring a lawsuit against an offending person or entity.
