False Claims Act Law Lawyers In Whitharral Texas

Whitharral is an unincorporated community in Hockley County, Texas, United States. Whitharral was founded in 1924 after the sale of the Littlefield ranchlands. The town was named by an early settler by the name of Whitfield Harral (or possibly Harold Whitfield, there are conflicting sources). The name is pronounced as 'Whit-hare-ull'; the 't' and 'h' do not blend. A school was founded in 1925, and a post office the following year. Cotton gins, three churches, a garage, and a general store followed soon after. Tornadoes have hit the town twice. The first occurred on Easter Sunday of 1957, causing some residential damage. The second one hit in 1970, causing heavy damage to the school. The Whitharral Independent School District serves area students. The high school football team has played in the UIL six-man football state championship three times, winning in 1981 and 2001. File:Whitharral Texas Cotton Gin 2010. jpg|Cotton gin, Whitharral.

What is false claims act law?

The False Claims Act ("FCA") allows a private individual with knowledge of past or present fraud on the federal government to sue on behalf of the government to recover compensatory damages, civil penalties, and triple damages. The FCA has become an important tool for uncovering fraud and abuse of government programs. The FCA compensates the private whistleblower, known as the relator, if his or her efforts are successful in helping the government recover fraudulently obtained government funds.

The FCA contains an ancient legal device called the "qui tam" provision which is shorthand for the Latin phrase:

qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hac parte sequitur
he who brings a case on behalf of our lord the King, as well as for himself

The False Claims Act allows a private individual with knowledge of past or present fraud on the federal government to sue on the government’s behalf to recover compensatory damages, civil penalties, and triple damages.
