  • $5 million


Western District of Kentucky, Paducah Division

G&E was lead counsel for whistleblowers Natural Resources Defense Council and several individuals in a case involving a failure to identify, report, properly handle, and properly dispose of hazardous waste produced and stored at a government-operated enrichment plant in Kentucky. The U.S. Department of Justice intervened and settled the case for $5 million.  In recognition of the high degree of assistance provided by the relators and their counsel, the DOJ awarded the relators 23% of the portion of the settlement attributable to the False Claims Act claims – which is well in excess of what is normally awarded in a settled case.
