Qui Tam

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

Qui Tam is an abbreviation for a Latin phrase qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hoc parte sequitur meaning who sues on behalf of the king as well as for himself. Qui tam is a writ under the Federal Civil False Claims Act that allows a private citizen with knowledge of past or present fraud committed against the U.S. federal government to sue on its behalf. This provision allows a private person, known as a relator, to file suit in the name of the U.S. Government, charging fraud by government contractors and other entities that receive or use government funds, and share any money recovered. The relator need not have been personally harmed by the defendant’s conduct.

A qui tam relator files a complaint, under seal, in a U.S. District Court that has jurisdiction over the case. Along with the complaint, the relator must also file a written disclosure of substantially all material evidence and information the person possesses. The primary purpose for the written disclosure is to provide the government with enough information to properly investigate the claim to determine if it will join in the lawsuit. Qui tam has been, and continues to be, a very effective and successful tool in combating government procurement and program fraud and recovering revenue lost because of the fraud.

Class Actions

Written by Law Offices Of Gary Green

A class action lawsuit is nothing more than the consolidation of several related lawsuits into one. Not all lawsuits are eligible to become class actions, in fact, most cannot. However, if there are numerous plaintiffs (or possibly defendants), all with common legal issues to resolve, then a judge may allow them to join as a class. Class action plaintiffs can include consumers hurt by defective products and small businesses bringing suit against large corporations for unfair business practices, persons harmed by pharmaceuticals, persons who have lost money in the securities markets, and many other types of common losses suffered by many people.

The ideal of the class action allows a remedy en masse to those who otherwise might not be able to afford access to the courts. Currently, cases can be under either state or federal jurisdiction and claims can be large or small.

For a class action lawsuit, a named plaintiff stands in for a group of similarly situated plaintiffs injured by the same defendant or group of defendants. The need for resources and ability to keep track of the many parties and issues involved make these very complex cases to handle. Many class action suits fail because the issues presented are not clear enough.
