Represented a Client Accused of Fraud and Violating the False Claims Act
Mrs. Tupper Butler served as the sole associate on a team that defended a federal agency accused of fraud and violating the False Claims Act. She was responsible for drafting all pleadings, including motions to dismiss and for summary judgment. She also researched and drafted the answer and counterclaim, responded to discovery requests, and prepared depositions. The team achieved a total victory for the client on summary judgment by securing dismissal of all claims against it while a counterclaim on behalf of the client against the whistleblower survived.
