Whistleblower lawsuits are getting spicy, this one filed from within, well at least being an attorney, she knows the rules and how to file suit.  Whistleblowers do stand a chance to benefit in the award if fraud and/or wrongdoing is found.  BD 

A qui tam lawsuit filed against medical device maker, Medtronic, by its former senior legal counsel was recently unsealed, and it provides detailed insight into the unsavory way in which surgeons are induced to use certain medical devices. The whistleblower was senior counsel in the spinal-device unit. She alleges that kickbacks from Medtronic to physicians were pervasive. Sales staff routinely took physicians to the Platinum Plus strip club in Memphis and paid for the dancers' services during VIP visits. Medtronic also took doctors on a five-day, all expenses paid trip to Alaska. The expenses allegedly included fishing guides, clothes, and more women.
