Millions Recovered For Our Clients No Fees Unless We Win

Philadelphia Whistleblower Lawyers: $11 million Settlement in Qui Tam Lawsuit

September 15th, 2016

Under the False Claims Act, a qui tam lawsuit enables whistleblowers that expose fraud against the federal government to receive a portion of recovered funds if their claims result in a successful settlement or verdict. Six former employees of Marinello Schools of Beauty will receive 25 to 30 percent of an $11 million settlement resulting from claims that the beauty school defrauded the federal government by falsifying enrollment and post-graduate employment information.

Marinello operated 56 beauty schools throughout several states until they were forced to shut down after the U.S. Department of Education barred the company’s schools from receiving federal funding earlier this year. The settlement represents a success for the whistleblowers, the federal government, and former Marinello students with outstanding federal loans who may have been unable to recover compensation from the school after its closure.

If you are aware of fraudulent claims or unlawful acts taking place within your company, you could be in a position to personally benefit by filing a whistleblower lawsuit.
