Fighting Environmental Fraud with the False Claims Act

The False Claims Act lawsuits can involve any area in which the federal government spends money, and the environment is no exception. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s $9 billion budget for FY 2020 and the Department of Energy (DoE)’s proposed $6.1 billion FY 2021 environmental management budget comprise a small percentage of the government’s fiscal budget, which makes preserving the integrity of each dollar especially important. Below are examples of how the FCA can hold contractors on federal environmental projects accountable for false claims. False claims concerning the environment can involve fraudulently obtaining environmental tax credits, providing faulty materials for environmental projects, or inflating prices of environmental services. Behind many of these cases are whistleblowers who filed FCA cases under seal through experienced attorneys like those at Goldberg Kohn, and shared in the settlements or judgments achieved by and for the government.
