One of my stated purposes in starting this blog was to create interest in the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act and in qui tam practice in general. In order for statutes such as the Federal False Claims Act and the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act to achieve their goals, it is necessary to build a public-private partnership between qui tam attorneys in private practice and our counterparts in the Virginia Office of the Attorney General and the United States Department of Justice.
Today’s blog will focus on the history of litigation under the VFATA since January 1, 2003 when it became law. I have attached to this entry a Mixx Delicious Digg Facebook Twitter
