Qui Tam: False Claims Act - Qui Tam
Whistleblower should be applauded for case against for-profit college company
By Phillips & Cohen LLP
Phillips & Cohen is not involved in the case. But Colette G. Matzzie, a Phillips & Cohen partner, posted this comment on the Washington Times website:
?The for-profit schools are the ones who have plundered the United States Treasury to the tune of many billions and left many students with crippling student loan debt and little prospects of gainful employment. One expose after another has revealed the coercive tactics used by many of the for profit schools to get ?butts in seats? including compensating admissions recruiters through bonuses and incentives. Quality educational institutions do not need to coerce students to enroll or convince them to stay long enough for their financial aid obligations to kick in. The EDMC lawsuit is one step toward addressing these fraudulent abuses and who better than former prosecutors to lead the way.?
We only wish Hart were correct that ?the Justice Department brings with it endless resources to pursue such a case.? Clearly Hart knows nothing about qui tam cases. The Justice Department, unfortunately, has limited resources for qui tam cases, which is why a whistleblower?s choice of an attorney ? one with a track record and who has the resources to pursue a case ? is extremely important.
