Nevada Qui Tam Attorney Tim Terry to Address Sacramento Gold Rush Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA)

Qui Tam Attorney Tim Terry of Carson City, Nevada will highlight the fundamentals of the Federal and California False Claims Acts at a February 17, 2010, meeting of the Sacramento Gold Rush Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA). The meeting will be from 11:30 - 1:30 at the La Boheme Continental Restaurant in Fair Oaks.

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2010 -- Qui Tam attorney Tim Terry of Carson City, Nevada will speak to a luncheon meeting of the Sacramento Gold Rush Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) on February 17, 2010, at 11:30 a.m. The meeting will take place at the La Boheme Continental Restaurant in Fair Oaks. Terry will highlight the Federal and California False Claims Acts and their application in fighting fraud against the Government.

Terry represents Qui Tam Relators (also known as Whistleblowers) in cases involving Medicaid and Medicare fraud, pharmaceutical fraud, economic stimulus program fraud, and other False Claims Act (FCA) prosecutions. The Federal and California False Claims Acts permit private citizens who have knowledge of fraud against Government programs to help the Government in recovering ill-gotten gains and additional civil penalties. These laws typically allow 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, Whistleblowers normally receive a percentage of the Government's recovery for their efforts in assisting the Government.

"Since 1986 over $20 Billion has been recovered for Government treasuries through FCA cases," said Terry, former Chief Deputy Attorney General for the State of Nevada. These laws have their origins in our country's Civil War years when Congress passed 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 powder, boots made of cardboard instead of leather, and providing supposedly new ships that were simply old ships with fresh paint.

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 Qui Tam 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 ( to represent citizens willing to fight fraud against the Government. He is affiliated with nationally known FCA attorneys Mike Behn and Steve Cohen of Chicago as the WhistleBlower Action Network (
