Qui Tam laws

"Qui tam" action

Citizens generally do not like to see their government defrauded. While some assume that there is nothing they can do when their government is being defrauded, there IS something that can be done. It is known as a "qui tam" action.

Filing Deadlines

Qui tam and Statute of Limitation

The deadline for filing a qui tam action depends on type of claim, however, it is absolutely critical to not make any judgments on the statute of limitations if you are not a practicing attorney. After all, if all it took to be a legal expert was simply opening up a copy of the US Code then there would be no need for attorneys.

COMMON QUESTIONS

An attorney needs to expertly determine whether or not a case has merit. The attorney also needs to be aggressive in pursuing the case. The attorney must also make sure the case is filed in the correct court.
