McVeigh v. Recology

A former employee turned whistleblower leveled serious charges of fraud, embezzlement and corruption against San Francisco-based Recology, accusing the unregulated garbage collection monopoly of bilking the State of California and taxpayers out of millions of dollars.

As a result, Brian McVeigh was fired for reporting fraud.

The Scott Law Firm won two appeals interpreting how to apply the California False Claims Act to protect whistleblowers in California.
