A federal whistleblower lawsuit against former disability attorney Eric C. Conn has ended. Back in 2011, two Social Security Administration employees, Jennifer Griffith and Sarah Carver, filed a whistleblower lawsuit against Conn and former Social Security Judge David Daugherty. In the suit Griffith and Carver alleged a conspiracy to defraud Social Security by obtaining disability benefits for Conn’s clients through fraud. Conn was eventually sentenced to his role in the case. On Thursday another judge entered a similar judgment against Daugherty, after he pleaded guilty to two counts of bribery last May. Both men have been ordered to repay the government nearly $31.5 million. If any money is ever recovered, a portion of that amount will go to Griffith and Carver.
