Can I file a qui tam case even if I already reported the alleged fraud to the government?

 

Yes.  You do not give up your right to bring a qui tam action by going to the Government before filing your qui tam lawsuit. However, it is important to note that you are barred from bringing a qui tam suit based upon allegations or transactions which are the subject of a False Claims Act suit already filed by the Government. So, if you deliver your information to the Government before filing a qui tam action, and the Government in turn files a False Claims Act action before you file, then you will have lost your right to bring a qui tam lawsuit. However, this can be avoided if you file promptly after informing the government.
