Qui Tam Whistleblower Receives $1.1 Million Reward in FCA Settlement with Lance Armstrong

The lawsuit was initiated by a qui tam whistleblower, Armstrong’s former USPS teammate Floyd Landis, in 2010, and the government intervened in 2013. Landis’ complaint was filed under the FCA’s qui tam provisions, which incentivize whistleblowers to file on behalf of the government by sharing in 15 to 25 percent of the action’s proceeds. For his contributions to this case, Landis will receive a whistleblower reward of $1,100,000, or 22% of the settlement.
