Washington Business Journal Covers TELG Client’s Whistleblower Lawsuit
On June 18, 2010, the Washington Business Journal wrote an article discussing the False Claims Act retaliation lawsuit filed by Robert Fagg against his former employer SmithGroup. The article is titled “Fired SmithGroup engineer files whistle-blower suit.” Robert, a former vice president in charge of quality-control reviews, raised numerous concerns about serious defects in mechanical designs for the renovation of the Navy hospital at Camp Lejeune, NC. Just days after meeting with SmithGroup President, Carl Roehling, Robert was laid off with his managing director citing a “complete and mutual lack of trust.” Robert filed suit for unlawful retaliation in violation of the False Claims Act and breach of contract.
