The Charlottesville Daily Progress Quotes TELG Principal Attorney, Adam Augustine Carter, on Recent $819,000 Verdict in Huang Whistleblower Retaliation Case

Following last week’s $819,000 jury verdict in favor of former University of Virginia research scientist Dr. Weihua Huang for retaliation he experienced when blowing the whistle on the alleged misuse of federal grant dollars, The Daily Progress interviewed Dr. Huang’s attorney, Adam Augustine Carter of The Employment Law Group® law firm.

The Charlottesville-based publication quoted Mr. Carter as stating that “this verdict is important to the entire [research] grant community because, on these grants, levels of efforts are assigned and the principal investigator is responsible for the use of money. That is the person who needs to be responsible and, in this case, that responsibility was taken over by the lab director.”

In his remarks to the paper, Mr. Carter also highlighted that the decision is important for setting precedent for cases filed under the federal False Claims Act as “there are precious few of these cases that go to trial and get a verdict.”

The Huang verdict is a precedent-setting case as it is one of the few lawsuits tried to a verdict since Congress amended the anti-retaliation provisions of the False Claims Act in May 2009.

The article, entitled “UVa whistleblower wins $820,000 in federal lawsuit”, originally appeared in the October 12, 2012 edition of The Daily Progress.
