U.S. intervenes in whistleblower suit against Symantec Corp
WASHINGTON, July 22
WASHINGTON, July 22 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department on Tuesday said it has intervened in a whistleblower lawsuit against Symantec Corporation that alleges the company submitted false claims to a government agency it worked with under contract.
The case alleges that Symantec, a security software maker, knowingly falsified information it provided to the U.S. General Services Administration about prices it was offering to commercial customers.
A whistleblower originally filed the suit, which was then investigated by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia.
