In a separate civil settlement agreement, Supreme agreed to pay another $101 million to settle a whistleblower lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, before U.S. District Court Judge Mary McLaughlin. The suit was filed by a former executive alleging that Supreme violated the False Claims Act by knowingly overcharging for supplying food and water under the SPV contract. The payment also resolves claims that, from June 2005 to December 2010, Supreme failed to disclose and pass through to the government rebates and discounts it obtained from its suppliers, as required by its SPV contract with the United States.

“These companies chose to commit their fraud in connection with a contract to supply food and water to our Nation’s fighting men and women serving in the desert,” said Memeger. “That kind of conduct is repugnant, and we will use every available resource to punish such illegal war profiteering.”
