Government Fraud (Qui Tam) Litigation
Fraud perpetrated against federal and state governments can waste billions of dollars of tax revenue. There are numerous examples of such practices, including:
Preparing a phony or exaggerated invoice to the government for payment; Preparing or delivering a false receipt to the government for its property; or Making false statements to fraudulent avoid paying a debt to the government.
The False Claims Act (also called the Lincoln Law) is a federal law that allows individuals to file actions against perpetrators of such frauds. Many states have similar laws that allow individuals to file suit against the perpetrators of fraud against the state. These types of actions are sometime referred to as Qui Tam cases. The term comes from the Latin phrase “qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hac parte sequitur,” loosely translated as “who sues for the king as well as for himself.”
