Whistleblower lawsuit alleges overcharging for airport work

A qui tam lawsuit claims that the company responsible for managing paving and constriction contracts for John Wayne Airport received bribes and kickbacks for steering work to a company that inflated its bills by $1.5 million.

The suit, filed under the provisions of the False Claims Act which allow private persons who discover fraud to bring civil suits on behalf of the government, says that JTHM & Associates were responsible for awarding contracts at the airport and awarded contracts to Sequel Contractors, Inc. in return for bribes.

The Los Angeles Times (subscription required) reported on the suit on June 17, 2005.
