FH+H Partner Milt Johns and a small team of attorneys represented a whistleblower in a significant and successful False Claims Act dispute with a large government contractor.
The Department of Justice intervened in the case, and eventually the matter settled for $2.6 million. The prosecution of the matter involved two successful arguments before the US 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.
“Contractors must be held accountable for their actions, especially when the safety of government personnel is at stake,” Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia (where the suit was filed), said in a WTOP article. “This settlement should remind contractors of the high value we place on safeguarding our personnel abroad.”
Mr. Johns and FH+H are leaders in the subject matter, representing whistleblowers and defending individuals and companies wrongly accused in False Claims Act cases.
