Atchariyakornchai v. Frederick Cty. Sanitation Auth.

A plaintiff alleging race discrimination against his employer failed to state a claim for discrimination under the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act. His alleged report to his supervisor of the agency’s failure to test water was not a request or demand for money or property from the Commonwealth, and there was no “claim” that was false or fraudulent. Thus, he didn’t sufficiently allege that he engaged in activity protected under the Act.

Partial motion to dismiss granted.

Atchariyakornchai v. Frederick Cty. Sanitation Auth., No. 5:18cv36, Sept. 30, 2018. WDVA at Harrisonburg (Dillon).
