New Qui Tam suit draws broad intervenor efforts from state governments

Law.com reports here about a qui tam suit concerning the quality of PVC pipes.  The plaintiffs allege that J-M Manufacturing deliberately mislead regulators and consumers with products that did not meet manufacturing standards.  The recently unsealed complaint illustrates the interesting path of some qui tam suits: (1) a government fails or declines to exercise authority; (2) private litigants file a qui tam suit; (3) governments seek to intervene in the lawsuit.
