Deskin Law Firm
Representing Individuals in False Claims Act Matters
The likelihood of winning the qui tam case depends on a number of factors, including:
Because the False Claims Act has a monetary reward, it openly encourages whistleblowers to come forward to expose fraud. Your financial motivation is not necessarily frowned upon, although this can be problematic if your motivation to bring a qui tam action is to use it as leverage in an employment dispute, as a weapon in a dysfunctional work environment, or for harassing purposes. The government frowns on relators’ misuse of the statute this way; furthermore, if the government declines intervention and the defendant prevails, the court may award defense costs and attorney fees if it finds the suit was filed for improper, vexatious, or harassing purposes.
