Minnesota Education Fraud Attorney

Education Fraud

Local, state, and federal governments spend enormous funds for education. The law firm of Tarshish Cody PLC follows the outcomes of false claims and whistleblower {qui tam} lawsuits closely, and we know that college level education and education grants are often sources of successful fraud claims.

Higher Education

The federal student aid program funds many colleges and universities. Eligibility for these student aid funds involve strict guidelines. For instance, recruiters are forbidden from working on incentive compensation. Ten percent of a school’s revenue must come from sources independent of student aid funding. If schools do not strictly abide by these standards, a qui tam lawsuit can be filed to recover funds distributed to schools. Also, some schools have been known to submit applications for tuition reimbursement to multiple agencies, which is a fraud on the government and those schools can also be the subject of a qui tam lawsuit

Grants

Educational institutions may not bill the government for reimbursement of research expenditures never made. They are also prohibited from including false information in their grant applications. Other prohibited grant practices include false descriptions of programs, over-charging for expenses involved in the grant administration, and over-stating the success of research being funded in order to obtain additional funds. Of course, misappropriation of grant funds for personal use is also fraud.

The law firm of Tarshish Cody PLC will discuss details of the information you may possess regarding fraud in education and grant funding. You can schedule a free initial consultation to discuss the viability of a qui tam lawsuit in which you may be entitled to a percentage of the recovered funds.
