The Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of defense contractor KBR Inc. in a whistleblower suit brought by a former employee. Benjamin Carter accused KBR of defrauding the government over water purification work in Iraq. The justices ruled unanimously that a law extending the time frame for fraud claims committed against the U.S. during wartime doesn’t apply to civil claims. Brian McLaughlin, a counsel in the Government Contracts Group at the law firm Crowell and Moring, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more on the lessons learned.
