How To Write A Qui Tam Complaint: A Tutorial Series
Complaint Drafting Considerations And Procedures For Federal Qui Tam Complaint Filing
I have decided to write a series of posts designed to be instructive on the topic of how to write a federal Qui Tam Complaint.
The tutorial is not intended to replace the hiring of an attorney to investigate, draft, or file your Qui Tam Complaint. This Qui Tam Complaint tutorial series is intended to be instructive on a variety of issues that should be considered, either prior to your decision to seek legal representation for your case, or prior to drafting, in the event you believe you can file without the assistance of a qualified attorney. In any event, many things must be considered in order to make the right decision on whether to file a Qui Tam Complaint, namely, the law, factual allegations, investigation and documentation of proof, statutory prerequisites, drafting considerations, format, fraud specificity, federal policy, federal protocol, timing, and tracking the United States code, among many other matters.
Although the How To Write A Qui Tam Complaint Series is being written as a tutorial for the self taught individual, it is not intended to represent legal advice for your particular case. Any such implication is completely unintended. As with all legal matters, you are urged to seek the advice of a qualified attorney.
I anticipate the entry of at least one topic per week, and will blog topics in chronological order as they would normally come up in a Qui Tam investigation, resulting in a filed Qui Tam Complaint.
After the Qui Tam Complaint is filed, other issues and considerations come into play. Those issues and topics will also be discussed, in order to give you an idea what actually happens in the system after your Complaint is filed, by whom, and what you can expect.
In the event that you have any specific questions not covered in this Series, you are encouraged to send an email through this site with your questions to the author.
