Our law firm has helped develop some of the most important case law in the area of the False Claims Act as applied here in New Jersey. In 2019, in the case of Charte v. American Tutor, et. al., we secured a precedential decision from the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia on a case stemming back to 2010. After a federal court judge dismissed the claim of our whistleblower client, we filed an appeal to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals reversing the decision of the federal judge and reinstating our client’s claims. In so doing, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals noted that it was a precedential decision, finding that New Jersey’s entire controversial doctrine did not preclude the pursuit of the Federal False Claims Act’s claim following the dismissal of an earlier state court action without prejudice.
When it comes to whistleblowing clients who have identified illegal or dangerous practices in the workplace, our dedicated team works with them to investigate and develop the often complicated facts associated with whistleblower claims. We have also pursued numerous claims in state and federal court on behalf of clients, litigating against Fortune 500 companies and leveling the playing field for our clients.
The procedures that must be followed when filing a Qui Tam case under the False Claims Act are highly specialized, and our firm is prepared to assist clients in navigating these requirements. We offer free client consultations, and guarantee confidentiality.
