Calnet Agrees to Settle Whistleblower Suit For $18.1 Million
Virginia-based Calnet, Inc., an intelligence analysis, information technology and linguist services company, has agreed to settle False Claims Act allegations for $18.1 million. The allegations were initially brought in a whistleblower suit filed in 2009 by former Calnet employee, Kimthy Chao, under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act.
The whistleblower’s complaint alleged that from 2006 to 2009, Calnet knowingly overcharged the United States for translation and linguist services provided at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and other facilities.
As her reward, the whistleblower Kimthy Chao will receive $2.6 million of the settlement amount.
