Washington Post article on qui tam case backlog for the DOJ sparks frenzy : Whistleblower Law Blog: "Today, Washington Post writer, Carrie Johnson put qui tam front and center in the minds of everyone around the country, with her newsworthy and in-depth front page article 'A Backlog Of Cases Alleging Fraud- Whistle-Blower Suits Languish at Justice' in the Washington Post today. I might add that this article was above the fold. The article highlighted how there are over 900 cases alleging fraud by government contractors and drugmakers for defrauding taxpayers and the government out of billions of dollars, that are in backlog because the Justice Department cannot keep up with the whistleblower cases being brought forward. As a law firm that handles qui tam cases nationwide, we can attest that this is true. However, this is not the story for this blog post, it is how much attention this Washington Post front page story has garnered in the blog-sphere."
