GAO Has Had Enough, Suspends Protester for One Year

Aug.26.2016

In a rare move, GAO has suspended a nuisance litigator from protesting for a period of one year after it had filed 150 meritless protests this fiscal year alone. While the decision in Latvian Connection LLC (Aug. 18, 2016) may be an isolated occurrence, it will be interesting to see whether such a sanction (or perhaps GAO’s soon-to-be-introduced protest filing fee) will deter future filings of other meritless protests.
