$500000000 Lottery Winner Suing To Remain Anonymous

$500000000 Lottery Winner Suing To Remain Anonymous

As communicated through her lawyers, a New Hampshire woman said she has the winning Powerball ticket worth $560 million, drawn on January 6.

The woman's lawyer has filed a case requesting to keep her anonymous.

Under New Hampshire law, a lottery winner's name, town and prize amount are public information.

The ticket will have to be submitted as signed with the winner's signature and personal information, the commission states.

A homeless mother of five in North Carolina offered to turn in Jane Doe's winning ticket in exchange for a six-bedroom house, a used auto and a small trust for each of her children.

Gordon included biographical information on several people who contacted his firm, the high-powered Shaheen & Gordon group that counts William Shaheen, a former USA attorney in New Hampshire and husband of Senator Jeanne Shaheen, among its partners. A hearing on the lawsuit, filed against the New Hampshire Lottery Commission, is scheduled for Tuesday.

"Press reports begat solicitations and proposed "solutions" from all over the world", wrote Steven M. Gordon, an attorney for Doe, in Monday's filing.

Jane Doe bought the winning lottery ticket at Reeds Ferry Market, an independent, more than 100-year-old convenience store in Merrimack, New Hampshire. Jane Doe's lawyers said they were already lining up bodyguards.

Marijuana is Illegal "everywhere" in America
But because of one senator's concerns over unrelated political issues-like legalizing marijuana-we can't even get a vote. Our nominee to the National Security Division - the anti-terrorism division - was approved unanimously in the committee.

He said he doesn't know the identity of the victor but hopes one of the regulars from the over 100-year-old store in Merrimack won the nation's eighth-largest lottery jackpot, Fox News reported.

The victor could have remained anonymous had the ticket been signed in the name of a trust, but Jane Doe was not aware she could do that before she wrote her own name.

A woman who says she's now a millionaire will fight to keep her anonymity Tuesday in a court in New Hampshire. She wants to avoid the bad luck that has plagued other lottery winners.

The New Hampshire resident says she made a huge mistake and hasn't turned in the ticket yet.

The state argues that making the woman's identity known to the public is important so that the public knows the victor is not associated with the lottery in any fashion. Any adjustment to the ticket purchased at Reed's Ferry Market in Merrimack would invalidate it, the lottery commission claims.

She later learned that she could have shielded her identity by writing the name of a trust. Nowhere, they said, does the website advise the victor "that there is an option for a trust to claim a prize".

Charles McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission, said the commission wants to work with the victor and is prepared to allow the funds to be assigned to a trust and transferred. But the state said that would alter the ticket and render it invalid. Charles R. McIntyre, executive director of the state lottery, who called the winning ticket "the most valuable piece of paper on the planet, more valuable than a Rembrandt", said it would take some time "to get that much cash in the state".

After court, Shaheen, one of her lawyers, told reporters that his advice to her was simple: "If you like your family and you like your friends and you like your relatives, don't tell anybody".
