Thought: If a False Claims case is filed and I am the whistleblower, will the press call me?
Answer: This is a matter you should discuss with your attorney. However False Claims cases are filed under seal, meaning that the lawsuit will not be public or even disclosed to the defendant for many months. While the initial seal lasts 60 days, the government typically extends the seal. Once the seal is lifted, the case will be a matter of public record. It is wise to talk to your attorney about any concerns you have regarding the lifting of the seal.
