Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

Qui Tam is a type of lawsuit brought by a private citizen (usually called a "whistle blower") against a person or company who is believed to have violated the law in the performance of a contract with the government or in violation of a government regulation, when there is a statute which provides for a penalty for such violations.

The action is brought like any other, with a complaint being filed against the wrongdoer in court.

I am a whistler blower filed under CEPA they also have major violation of federal law
Lawyer: Roger, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Ok. You would file suit against the wrongdoer. You likely need to find a local lawyer / law firm to help you get the suit filed and also inform the government agency it involves of the situation so the government can get involved.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
