This rare Civil War Act Law Suit and Gibeaults case profoundly affected his life after a (12 year) court battle from 1986 till 1998. Like all the Pioneer Qui Tam Relators who stepped forward after the original Oct. 27, 1986 amendment to The False Claims Act  31 U.S.C. 3729-3733 not realizing exactly what they were stepping into, many pioneers whistleblowers never recovered from their trauma. http://articles.latimes.com/1993-09-13/nPws/mn-34824_1_defense-industry   A Front Page Column 1 article that is a 4 page article about the First Pioneer Whistleblowers, to read all 4 pages each page is numbered at the bottom of each page.

There will be a final and comprehensive storyline posted on google in the very near future.
