Sarah Graves — Associate, Husch Blackwell
A new federal appeals court ruling has found that federal contractors can be taken to court under the False Claims Act if they low-ball their cost estimates during the bidding process. The ninth circuit opinion, released earlier this month, involves a contract between the Air Force and Lockheed Martin dating back to 1995. A former Lockheed employee argued the company knowingly underestimated its costs to give it a better chance at winning. The court found Lockheed could be liable under the False Claims Act. Sarah Graves joined In Depth to discuss the case and the implications for federal contractors.
You can read more about the case in Grave's recent blog post.
