Mayo Clinic Settles Whistleblower Suit
The Mayo Clinic has agreed to pay $6.5 million to settle charges that it misspent millions of dollars in federal research grants, according to a story in yesterday’s Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The Rochester-based clinic denied any wrongdoing in the case, which was triggered by a whistleblower lawsuit filed in 2002 by a former employee. The whistleblower, Christine Long, will receive $1.3 million in the settlement. She was a former accounting assistant in Mayo’s research grant office who accused the clinic of violating the federal False Claims Act by charging the government for unrelated research grant expenses. The federal government then launched its own investigation.
