U.S. Intervenes in American Commercial College, Inc. Qui Tam Action
The United States has intervened in a qui tam action filed against American Commercial College Inc. (“ACC”), a chain of for-profit colleges located in west Texas. The action was filed under the qui tam provision of the False Claims Act by whistleblowers Shawn Clark and Anthony Delgado, former ACC employees.
The whistleblowers’ complaint alleges that ACC falsely certified that it was in compliance with federal law which prohibits colleges and universities from obtaining more than 90 percent of their annual tuition from federal student aid provided through the U.S. Department of Education.
The whistleblowers stand to recover between 15-25% of any settlement or judgment obtained by the federal government against ACC.
If you have any firsthand knowledge, information, or evidence related to any federal, state, county or city government fraud, you should speak with an experienced qui tam lawyer who can help you understand your legal rights and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
