Once allegations are disclosed publicly, often by the media, individuals face a higher hurdle in bringing fraud suits on the government's behalf. Otherwise, people could read a newspaper account or an indictment and then rush to the courthouse to file suit.
It seems to me that the media is the quickest and most efficient way to expose this kind of fraud. All this law does is create more tension between management and the workforce. And environmental laws have become absurd - many of them seem purpose made to show business the shaft.

I'm divided on this one.
Environmental laws are mostly crap, but qui tam is a good law that's used to go after the scum that rip taxpayers off.
The SC missed the target on this one and told the whistle-blower to take a long walk on a short pier.
