Date:2/19/2010

False Claims Act/Qui Tam Attorney Tim Terry will present a talk on the False Claims Act to the Great Salt Lake Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) at its luncheon meeting on February 22, 2010, in Clearfield. Terry will discuss the "nuts and bolts" of the False Claims Act, its use in fighting fraud against the Government, and its unique "qui tam" provision.

Clearfield, UT (PRWEB) February 19, 2010 -- False Claims Act attorney Tim Terry will address a luncheon meeting of the Great Salt Lake Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) on February 22, 2010 at 11:30 am. The meeting will be at Ramblin Roads Diner in Clearfield. Terry will talk about the content of the False Claims Act, its unique "qui tam" provisions, and how it is used in fighting fraud against the Government.

Terry represents False Claims Act "Relators" (also known as Whistleblowers) in cases involving Medicare and Medicaid fraud, pharmaceutical fraud, economic stimulus program fraud, and other False Claims Act (FCA) prosecutions. The unique "qui tam" provision in the False Claims Act permits private citizens who have knowledge of fraud against Government programs to help the Government in recovering ill-gotten gains and additional civil penalties. The FCA allows the Government to collect up to three times the dollar amount it was defrauded, in addition to civil penalties ranging up to $10,000 per false claim. And, Terry noted, the Relator or Whistleblower normally receives a percentage of the Government's recovery for his or her efforts in assisting the Government.

Terry, who served for over 17 years as the head of the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit in the Nevada Attorney General's Office, was involved in over 100 False Claims Act cases and was a leading prosecutor in multi-state prosecutions of such cases under the Federal and various State False Claims Acts. in 2008 he established The Terry Law Firm, Ltd. in Carson City, Nevada (www.theterrylawfirm.com) to represent citizens willing to report and fight fraud against the Government. He is affiliated with nationally known False Claims Act attorneys Mike Behn and Steve Cohen of Chicago as the WhistleBlower Action Network (www.whistlebloweraction.com).

"Since 1986 over $20 Billion has been recovered for Government treasuries through False Claims Act cases" said Terry. This law has its origins in our country's Civil War years when Congress enacted the original False Claims Act (also known as "Lincoln's Law") to address rampant fraud plaguing Union Army procurements. Examples of fraud in those days included the supplying of munitions filled with sawdust rather than gun powder, boots made of cardboard instead of leather, and providing supposedly new ships that were simply old ships with fresh paint.
