August 27th, 2013 by Qui Tam

ATI Enterprises, Inc. agreed to pay the government $3.7 million to settled claims that it falsely certified compliance with federal financial aid programs.  The government claims that ATI fraudulently misrepresented its job placement statistics to maintain its eligibility for financial aid programs, and that it fraudulently induced students to enroll in the school and to maintain their enrollment  to increase the amount of federal dollars received.  The settlement resolves two separate whistleblower suits that were filed against ATI for claims under the False Claims Act.
