Declined Qui Tam Cases
If the government has declined to intervene in your case, the first thing to remember is: you are not alone. U.S. Department of Justice statistics indicate that fewer than 25% of all qui tam actions result in intervention on any claim. That means that each year, hundreds of whistleblowers are left with a very trying decision: abandon a case that has already taken years, damaging your career and personal life; or go at it alone, battling powerful defrauders and sometimes even the government agencies. Worse yet, it is at this juncture that many whistleblower law firms do a declination of their own, losing interest or pulling out of the case entirely—just when the whistleblower is most in need of a good lawyer.
At Loevy & Loevy, we can help. We have the knowledge and experience to advise you about whether to relinquish your qui tam lawsuit or continue to fight on. Most importantly, if your suit is viable (as many declined qui tam cases are), we have the resources and wherewithal to take over your representation at the point of declination, prepare your case for trial, and win.
The fact is, Congress gave whistleblowers private attorney general powers precisely because the government does not always pursue the legitimate cases. While the government’s investigation sometimes uncovers a genuine insurmountable problem with the fraud case, all too often the government’s declination decision stems from a poor investigation. Bad declinations can result from laziness, disinformation by the high-paid lawyers who defend the defrauders, and even cover-ups by the victim government agencies that are embarrassed for being asleep at the wheel or too entwined with the government contractors that routinely bilk them.
