Qui Tam Attorney Tim Terry will participate in a panel discussion hosted by the Puget Sound Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, at the Museum of Flight. Terry will highlight the False Claims Act and its use in fighting fraud against the Government.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 8, 2010 -- Qui Tam Attorney Tim Terry of Carson City, Nevada will participate as a panel member in a training event hosted by the Puget Sound Chapter of the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) on February 10, 2010, at The Museum of Flight. The panel discussion is entitled "Contract Claims, False Claims Act and How to Prevent Claims". The event is scheduled from 12:30 - 5:00 p.m. Terry will highlight the Federal False Claims Act and its application in fighting fraud against the Government. The other panel members are Joaquim Hernandez who will speak on Contract Claims and James Nagle who will speak on How to Prevent Claims.

Terry represents Qui Tam 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 Federal False Claims Act and similar State 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. The Federal FCA was enacted during our country's Civil War years to address rampant fraud plaguing Union Army procurements. It is also referred to as "Lincoln's Law." 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 covered 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. (www.theterrylawfirm.com) 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 (www.whistlebloweraction.com).
