• What happens after filing a qui tam lawsuit?

After a whistleblower files a qui tam lawsuit (with the required help of an attorney), the government begins an investigation into the complaint’s allegations of fraud. This process can take considerable time to complete. Once it concludes its investigation, the government will decide whether it will join in the case. If the government declines to do so, the relator may still pursue the lawsuit on their own, and the government retains the right to intervene at a later date. If the government takes up the case, the relator and their attorney remain active and involved in the lawsuit.
