Successful Whistleblower FCA Suit Against Adult Diaper Co.

April 12, 2019 Media Mentions

On April 12, 2019, an adult diaper corporation, Coloplast Corp., was subjected to pay just over $760,000 for retaliating against a worker after she and others filed a whistleblower suit against the company and distributors. The plaintiff Amy Lestage, who brought the False Claims Act suit to the company for claiming Coloplast gave illicit discounts, was awarded $762,525 for purportedly unjustified administrative leave by the company as well as other alleged interference with her job. Lestage was represented by labor and employment attorney Tawny Alvarez and litigation and trial attorney Paul Saw. The case began in 2015 and ended in a successful victory for the plaintiff.
