Supreme Court: Kellogg Brown & Root Servs., Inc. v. U.S. ex rel. Carter

The first-to-file qui tam provisions are meant to strengthen the False Claims Act and to prevent potential relators who do not add meaningful information to an action from becoming involved. This provision however, is not intended to prevent new important information or allegations from being used against organizations involved in defrauding the government.
