Mychal Wilson Discusses the FCA $66 Million Zylon Bullet Proof Vest Settlement and Wildlife Crime Rewards On The Whistleblower
LOS ANGELES, April 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mychal Wilson, Esq., will feature one of our nation’s prominent and leading whistleblower attorneys, Mr. Stephen M. Kohn, who’s client Bradley Birkenfeld received a $104 million IRS Tax award for blowing the whistle and revealing the secrets of the Swiss banking system. Currently, the $104 million award is the largest whistleblower recovery ever paid to a single individual.
Tonight’s episode of “The Whistleblower with Mychal Wilson, Esq.” will discuss Mr. Kohn’s recent $66 million whistleblower settlement to resolve claims under the False Claims Act that Toyobo sold unsafe Zylon bullet proof vests to American police departments, federal law enforcement agencies and the U.S. military.
As part of the settlement Toyobo agreed to pay the United States $66 million to settle allegations that it violated the False Claims Act. Relator Aaron Westrick, Ph.D. will obtain a qui tam whistleblower reward of $5.77 million.
“I would like to congratulate Dr. Westrick, Stephen Kohn and their entire legal team for their perseverance and resolve under the False Claims Act,” says Mychal Wilson, Esq.
The claims settled by this agreement are allegations only; there has been no determination of liability. The lawsuits resolved by the settlement are captioned United States ex rel. Westrick v. Second Chance Body Armor, et al., No. 04-0280 (PLF) (D.D.C.) and United States v. Toyobo Co. Ltd., et al., No. 07-1144 (PLF) (D.D.C.).

Mychal Wilson, Esq. is a successful relator and Qui Tam attorney who has assisted various Federal and State agencies in the recovery of over $580 million in American taxpayer's dollars, who recently launched his new 30 minute news series titled "The Whistleblower” with Mychal Wilson, Esq.
"In today's evolving cultural climate, I want to give the public an insider's view into the risky, secret and potentially lucrative world known as 'whistleblowing,' a show which explores and examines the courage and integrity within us, and in some cases the potentially highly lucrative rewards received by those Davids fighting those Goliaths. And, to feature and applaud those individuals who help bring about justice for others, which is sometimes at their own expense," says Mychal Wilson, Esq.
Currently, the show's streaming content features compelling whistleblower journeys such as successful whistleblower Mr. James Holzrichter, who, after overcoming retaliation and homelessness, received $22.4 million in a $135 million settlement against one of America's largest defense contractors Northrop Grumman, opioid (Fentanyl) and INSYS whistleblower Ms. Patricia Nixon, and Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment whistleblower Ms. Katherine Kendall.
While not offering legal advice, "The Whistleblower” with Mychal Wilson, Esq." does provide examples of legal recourse for potential whistleblowers, and for those who are being harassed, wrongfully terminated and/or retaliated against by her or his employer. "Been there, done that, as a former big pharma sales rep, so now I want to help those who may be facing similar hostile work environments," declares Mychal Wilson, Esq.”
"I would like to thank American national television host, radio host, columnist and political commentator Rick Amato, producer Sutton Porter, and RADTV (including co-founder Barbara Beach) for the opportunity to create and distribute this show," says Mychal Wilson.
