Confidential Consultation

July 5, 2005

RACINE, Wis. — A man is set to get more than a million dollars from the federal government for suing his former bosses.

Gerald Rademacher’s lawsuit accused his former employer of overcharging the government for computer accessories.

The federal False Claims Act allows workers to file such suits and collect part of the damages if they win. Rademacher is set to get $1.575 million from a $9 million legal settlement his company paid.

Rademacher, 62, was a district sales manager for Softview Computer Products, which later merged with New York-based Humanscale.

His lawsuit alleged that between 1998 and 2004, Humanscale gave lower prices to other customers than to the government. The General Services Administration, which oversees purchasing for the U.S. government, demands certification that vendors are giving the government their lowest prices.

Rademacher also claimed the business misrepresented itself as a small, Washington D.C.-based outfit when the D.C. facility really was one of many offices.

”Mr. Rademacher is a courageous man who showed a great deal of resolve in pursuing this matter and is very deserving of the reward he received,” said Paul Scott, Rademacher’s attorney.
