Kirk Chapman Talks Whistleblower Suits

By on June 3, 2011

Information provided by whistleblowers has enabled the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to recover more than $5 billion under the False Claims Act (FCA) since the beginning of 2009. Under the FCA, whistleblowers are permitted to bring a Qui Tam action, which allows citizens to sue on behalf of the government and be paid a percentage of the recovery.

Whistleblowers are entitled to share 15% to 30% of any money the DOJ recovers based upon the information they provided.

Milberg partner Kirk Chapman, who has decades of experience in litigating lawsuits filed by whistleblowers, sat down with Class Action Central reporter Allen Yesilevich to discuss various aspects of the FCA.
