Taking The Department Of Justice Out Of Qui Tam Cases Might Improve Enforcement Actions
The most efficient and least emotional way to cover government budget deficits may not be to collect more in taxes, but instead collect more in damages from massive government contractor fraud. Could it be that conflicts in The Department of Justice (DOJ) and nationwide local prosecutors in U.S. Attorney’s Offices (AUSAs) have been far too lenient over the years despite the False Claims Act (FCA)? There is more money to be had and, in the process, could serve as a deterrent for fraud and waste.
