Law 101 Continued: Now It Gets Latin

What is, or has anyone even heard of the phrase, 'qui tam'?

Qui tam basically is one of the least expensive, yet most effective means of preventing goverment fraud by possibly making those who are responsible liable for such fraud thanks in large part to those who are more or less amateur witnesses and investigators.

Who makes these others aware of such wrongdoing? They are the relators discussed in another post. You may recall they are better known as whistleblowers. And what they disclose is done in a number of different paths, some of which are quite creative, yet also have become more frequent.

Thier bravery combined with idealism and consideration for others are rare, yet admirable, traits, one could say.
