Beasley Allen Secures $30 Million Whistleblower Settlement in USIS Case

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.

US Investigations Services LLC Eliminates 2,500 Jobs

US Investigations Services LLC eliminated 2,500 jobs with the loss of two contracts to support background checks for the federal government-a move that spurred a lawsuit from an employee that claims he and his colleagues weren't given proper warning before getting laid off. Most of the eliminated jobs were in Pennsylvania, though some in the D.C. area were also affected. The layoffs came as a result of the decision by the Office of Personnel Management to not renew two contracts to perform and support background checks for the federal government. Those two contracts, valued at up to $3 billion in all, employed 3,000 of the 5,700 people that worked at USIS. Both contracts expired Sept. 30.
