TELG Principal Attorney, Adam Augustine Carter, Quoted in The Richmond Times-Dispatch on Recent $819,000 Verdict in False Claims Whistleblower Retaliation Suit

Share

The Richmond Times-Dispatch recently reported on last week’s $819,000 jury verdict in favor of a former University of Virginia research neuroscientist represented by The Employment Law Group® law firm, Dr. Weihua Huang, who acted reported the alleged misuse of federal research grant dollars and suffered retaliation for his whistleblowing.

Dr. Huang’s attorney, Adam Augustine Carter, told the Richmond-based paper that the jury’s decision in favor of the whistleblower is important as a precedent for cases brought under the federal False Claims Act since there have been “precious few of these cases that go to trial and get a verdict.”

According to Mr. Cater, “this case should serve to encourage other courageous whistleblowers to report abuse in federal grants to come forward.”  While doing so, Carter noted, “is often tough, Dr. Huang’s courage has set an example.”

The article, entitled “Jury awards $800,000 to U.Va. researcher”, appeared in the October 14, 2012 edition of the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
