False Claims Act

The False Claims Act, or “Lincoln Law”, refers to a federal law that allows individuals, known as a “relator”, to file lawsuits on behalf of the US government. Lincoln Law allows relators (individuals who are not directly involved with the government) to file claims against a federal contractor who filed false claims or billings with the government. Often referred to as “whistleblowing”, people who file under the False Claims Act are entitled to a share of the any recovered damages, sometimes up to a quarter of the amount.

These actions are often referred to as “Qui tam”, and are as old as the colonies in this country. The False Claim law saw a resurgence of popularity in the late 1980’s as a way to prevent federal contract fraud. Once the relator has filed the suit, the federal government (U.S. Attorney and Department of Justice) has the ability to intervene in the suit, but if they do not then the share of suit amount is generally higher (but suits without government intervention have a lower success rate).
