State False Claims Acts
LK handles qui tam cases nationwide. In addition to the Federal False Claims Act, 23 states have their own false claims acts. Each one has established laws that allow recovery for “whistle blowers” who can prove fraud against a government body and laws that protect them from retaliation by their employer.
These states include: California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin, bringing the total number of states to 24. The California and Illinois false claims acts also permit relators to bring claims for fraud against private insurers. Other bodies of government that have their own false claims acts are the District of Columbia, New York City and Chicago.
Note: The text of the state FCA laws on this web site are believed to be
up-to-date and complete, but we urge lawyers and relators filing qui tam
cases to rely on the most up-to-date version of their respective state codes.
