Fraudulent Claim Gets The Triple Whammy
In Daewoo Eng'g and Constr. Co. v. U.S. (Fed. Cir. Feb. 20, 2009), the Federal Circuit affirmed the CFC's findings that the contractor had submitted a $64 million claim involving approximately $50 million based on material misrepresentations that amounted to a fraud. From this, the contractor received the triple whammy of forfeiting its entire claim under the CDA, being penalized $50 million under the CDA, and being fined $10,000 under the FCA.
