Federal prosecutors on Friday announced a $545,000 False Claims Act settlement with Silicon Valley network security company Fortinet Inc.

The terms of the settlement are relatively routine: The Sunnyvale-based company agreed to pay $400,000 and to provide the U.S. Marine Corps with $145,000 in equipment to resolve False Claims Act allegations. The case’s route to settlement, however, appears to have been anything but normal thanks to former DOJ lawyer and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld partner Jeffrey Wertkin.
