Lessons Learned From Supreme Court’s Ruling in Favor of KBR Inc.
Jun.01.2015 — Federal News Radio
Brian T. McLaughlin, a Washington, D.C.-based counsel in Crowell & Moring's Government Contracts Group, talks with Federal News Radio host Tom Temin on the "Federal Drive" program about the Supreme Court's ruling in favor of defense contractor KBR Inc. in a False Claims Act (FCA) whistleblower suit brought by a former employee. McLaughlin described the facts of the case and noted that it is not unusual for these types of FCA cases to take a long time. He noted that "this is a ruling that defense contractors will be very happy with because it means that the tolling period is not suspended, and that whistleblowers have a duty to bring their claims forward in a timely way."
