Violation Tracker Adds More Than 1,000 U.S. Attorney Case Records With More than $18 Billion in Fines and Settlements

Violation Tracker, the country’s first public database of corporate crime and misconduct, is bigger and better.

The new additions include more than 1,000 cases handled by U.S. Attorney’s Offices around the country since 2000.

Violation Tracker is a project of Good Jobs First.

“The vast majority of cases brought by the 93 U.S. Attorneys involve individual drug prosecutions, but we tracked down the important subset in which corporations are targeted for offenses such as fraud, foreign bribery and serious product safety violations,” said Good Jobs First Research Director Philip Mattera, who leads the work on the database.

The 1,000 newly added civil and criminal case records represent more than $18 billion in fines and settlements.

Three dozen of the cases have penalties of $100 million or more, with banks — such as JPMorgan Chase and Deutsche Bank — and pharmaceutical companies — such as Purdue Pharma and Novartis — appearing most frequently.

There are also many False Claims Act cases involving hospitals as well as other healthcare providers.

Violation Tracker now contains 300,000 entries, which total $400 billion in fines and settlements in cases brought since 2000 by more than 40 federal regulatory agencies and all divisions of the U.S. Justice Department.
