SPOKANE -- The U.S. Justice Department is intervening in a federal lawsuit against Fluor Hanford Inc. and its parent company, Fluor Corporation.
The False Claims Act lawsuit was originally filed by whistleblower Loydene Rambo, a former employee of Fluor.
Between 1999 and 2008, Fluor was a major contractor on the Hanford nuclear reservation. Contractors are not allowed to use federal funds for lobbying activities.
But the whistleblower lawsuit alleges that between 2005 and 2008, Fluor used DOE funds to lobby Congress and executive branch officials for more funding.
The federal government will now take over litigation in the case.
