Beasley Allen Secures $30 Million Whistleblower Settlement in USIS Case
Dec 21 15
Lawyers from Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, P.C. helped to secure an agreement in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to settle allegations that private contractor U.S. Investigations Services Inc. (USIS), formerly the Federal Government's provider of security background checks, violated the False Claims Act (FCA). Beasley Allen Principals Larry Golston and W. Daniel "Dee" Miles, III, who is head of the firm's Consumer Fraud section, represented former USIS employee Blake Percival, who filed a whistleblower complaint in 2011. The lawsuit filed by Beasley Allen on behalf of Mr. Percival alleged that USIS knowingly conducted flawed investigations of individuals seeking security clearances. Beginning in at least March 2008 and continuing through at least September 2012, USIS management devised and executed a scheme to deliberately circumvent contractually required quality reviews of completed background investigations in order to increase the company's revenues and profits. According to the allegations, approximately 40% of all USIS security background checks – at least 665,000 in total – involved dumping/flushing and resulted in individuals receiving security clearances for positions for which they were not properly vetted. The DOJ joined the lawsuit in 2013. However, in the spring of 2015, USIS's parent company, Altegrity, filed for bankruptcy, which made it more difficult for the government to recover what the company owed, and for Mr. Percival to receive a whistleblower reward. Under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act, the whistleblower is entitled to receive up to 30% of any money the government recovers. This is both an incentive and a reward for the tremendous sacrifices – both personal and professional – whistleblowers often make by reporting the truth. Recognizing the importance of the case, Golston and Miles fought to continue the litigation, and the Justice Department agreed to remain a part of the case, and ultimately USIS agreed to forego at least $30 million in payments legitimately owed to the company to settle the government's allegations.
