Weiser, et al. v. Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure

Christy Weiser and Greg Pierson filed a lawsuit alleging a scheme of kickbacks, overbilling, and other improprieties by employees of the Louisiana Office of Community Development (OCD) and Shaw Environmental & Infrastructure on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) to elevate the homes of people who live in flood-prone areas of Louisiana. (Shaw regulates and monitors the program through a contract with the OCD.) Weiser and Pierson also allege they were subject to retaliation because of their whistleblowing efforts.
