DOJ Settles $15.5 Million Qui Tam Lawsuit with Advertising Agency
A Chicago advertising firm agreed to pay the U.S. $15.5 million to settle a qui tam lawsuit alleging the company “improperly” billed the government for work on the “Army of One” Web site and recruitment advertising. The Leo Burnett Company will make a cash payment and resolve the remaining balance in work performed but not billed. The case was begun by two whistleblowers, Greg Hamilton and Michele Casey; both were former Leo Burnett employees. The whistleblowers will receive a portion of the recovery, over $2.5 million, for their involvement in the case.
