New Filings in District Court: 9/24-9/28 September 28, 2007

Posted by rezjudicata in District Courts.

Freemanville Water Systems, Inc. v. Poarch Creek Band of Creek Indians, et. al., SD Alabama, 2007cv00688, Sept 27, 2007

Plaintiff bringing a statutory action for fraud under 31 U.S.C. § 3731. Without access to the court filings, one can only guess at the specific nature of the suit. Section 3731 is part of a statute that authorizes civil actions against parties for false claims made on the government. Section 3730 allows private parties to bring actions on behalf of the government and personally. The Poarch Creek Band buys water from Freemanville Water Systems, so it is likely that FWS is alleging fraud arising out of that relationship.
