False Claims Litigation The federal government and several states, including Illinois, have laws that create liability for submitting false claims to a government agency. In most situations, that means billing the government for services not actually being provided or simply defrauding the government by over billing. These statutes dictate that the person who files a lawsuit, based on non-public information, shall be entitled to a percentage of the money that the government receives from the case. These cases allow for treble damages, and an award of 15 to 25% in most cases. These individuals, known as Relators, have received on average an award of $1 million.
