Qui Tam

A provision of the False Claims Act which allows private citizens who have knowledge of fraud committed against the federal government to file a lawsuit on behalf of the government.

The Latin term “qui tam” is shorthand for the longer phrase, “qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hoc parte sequitur,” which translates as “he who [sues] for the king as well as for himself.”
