Virginia Qui Tam Law.com is pleased to announce that the Virginia Office of the Attorney General will be sponsoring a Continuing Legal Education Seminar on the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act on October 3, 2008, from 2:00 to 5:00 PM.
The meeting is open to the entire Office of the Attorney General, as well as members of the private bar. We also hope to attract Constitutional Officers such as Circuit Court Clerks, and others involved in the administration of Virginia Courts.
The single most important aim, however, is to build the public-private partnership between Government attorneys and members of the private bar that is a crucial prerequisite to large scale enforcement of the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act.
Senator Grassley (R-IA) himself described the need for such a partnership when he led the charge to update the Federal False Claims Act in 1986:
The program will be an enhanced version of the seminar we put on in February through the Fairfax Bar Association, and the speakers will again be Special Assistant Attorney General Guy W. Horsley, Jr., Jeb White, who serves as Executive Director of Taxpayers Against Fraud, and myself. The conference will be held in the Office of the Attorney General, located at 900 E. Main Street, Richmond, Virginia.
There will be more details to follow, but in the interim anyone wishing to register should email me.
