The Source for Whistleblowers, Journalists, Legislators & Academics

Can anyone be a Relator?

No. A Relator cannot, for example, bring a False Claims lawsuit that is based upon public information. Public information includes information from the news media, government audits, or public court proceedings. If the information upon which the suit is based is a matter of public record as defined by law, the Relator must be an “original source.”
