Whistleblower Case Brought by Fischer Legal Group Settles for $13 Million

The Attorney General for the State of New York settled a New York State False Claims Act qui tam action, brought by Andrea Fischer, and handled by Andrea Fischer and Audrey Schechter of Fischer Legal Group, on behalf of its client whistleblower, against Port Authority food vendors.

The suit was filed in 2015 by Andrea Fischer in the New York State Supreme Court, New York County, and was prosecuted by the New Yrok State Attorney General's taxpayer fraud division. 

The suit alleged that Defendants ran various food concessions at JFK Terminal 1 and were underpaying monies due the Port Authority and taxes owed the State of New York, by setting up a scheme where payments for food and drinks paid in cash were not included in the amounts reported to the government or the Port Authority.

Ms. Fischer's client has remained anonymous throughout the process.
