In NH, mystery Powerball victor will receive payment

In NH, mystery Powerball victor will receive payment”

The ticket, purchased at the H-E-B store in Bellmead, matched the five numbers in Saturday night's drawing, but not the Powerball.

In any case, the New Hampshire Lottery Commission agreed on February 15 to transfer Jane Doe's winnings to the trust account, pending the court's final ruling.

Jane Doe will get her money.

Judge Charles Temple issued his ruling Friday, just days after hearing arguments from the winner's lawyers and lawyers representing the state lottery commission.

Sheehan suggested that the lottery should have better language on the back to warn winners about their options.

"These communications and ticket images contain information which, if released, may defeat security measures within this unredeemed ticket and lead to an effort to counterfeit the ticket before it is redeemed", the filing states.

After the hearing, her other attorney, William Shaheen, explained that the woman has already suffered an "unreal" amount of stress with people's hands out, even despite her managing to remain an unknown since winning the historic January 6 drawing.

Once the ticket is verified as a winning ticket, the prize money will be transferred as soon as possible to an account in the name of the trust, ruled Temple.

"The New Hampshire Lottery realizes that acquiring a $560 million Powerball prize is a life-changing experience", Charlie McIntyre, the New Hampshire Lottery's executive director, told in a report.

Attorneys for the woman recently filed a lawsuit in Hillsborough County Superior Court asking for her identity to remain a secret.

New Hampshire is one of a handful of states that allows trusts to anonymously claim lottery prizes. The program began in 1964 to fund education, which it still does.

In 2016, a New Hampshire family that won a $487 million Powerball jackpot remained anonymous as lawyers for their trust claimed it.

Across the country, 43 states and the District of Columbia operate lottery programs.

'For us, this is about the challenge of balancing the privacy rights of the victor against the right of the public to know what the lottery does, ' McIntyre said.

They described the woman, who is from southern New Hampshire, as a private person who doesn't want the attention that often comes with winning a big jackpot.

Steven M. Gordon, an attorney for New Hampshire lottery victor "Jane Doe", talks to reporters after a hearing at Hillsborough Superior Court in Nashua, N.H., on February 13, 2018.
