Illinois and Missouri Construction Companies Agree to Civil Settlement

On January 18, 2022, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Illinois and the State of Illinois entered into a civil settlement agreement with D&K Welding Services (D&K) and its president, Dorrie Wise-Harris; and United Ironworkers (United) and its president, Kim Rasnick (collectively, the defendants). The defendants agreed to pay a total of $440,000 to resolve Civil False Claims Act allegations. The Government alleged that United, a non-Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), conspired with D&K to provide materially false representations and information about the ownership and control of D&K for DBE certification and recertification purposes.
