Mega Million, Powerball Lottery Jackpots Continue To Grow, Surpass $318M

A lawyer representing the woman says she was "jumping up and down" after learning of the judge's ruling in her favor. The winning ticket in the January 6 market was sold at the Reeds Ferry Market in that town. He did rule, however, that the woman's hometown can be publicly released, as it was "highly unlikely" that the woman could be identified as the victor exclusively based on her hometown.

The victor of a US$560 million Powerball jackpot - one of the largest prizes in United States history - can remain anonymous, a New Hampshire judge ruled on Monday.

This option was detailed on the lottery's website but not on the tickets and New Hampshire's lottery rules require the winner's name, town and the winning amount to be public.

The judge dismissed the state's argument that disclosing her name would show the public that the lottery system is above board. The woman's lawyers have argued that she is part of a group that "has historically been victimized by the unscrupulous", and that she made a mistake by signing her name on the ticket, when if she had set up an anonymous trust, she would have been able to avoid identifying herself in that way.

He denied insinuations that he overlooked the killings that happened in Benue, saying he is genuinely anxious over them. The president said this during a meeting with stakeholders in the north central state.

The woman's lawyers argued her privacy interests outweigh what the state said is the public's right to know who won the money in the nation's eighth-largest lottery jackpot.

"T$3 he court has no doubts whatsoever that should Ms. Doe's identity be revealed, she will be subject to an alarming amount of harassment, solicitation, and other unwanted communications", Temple wrote.

Once taxes were deducted last week, Doe's trust collected more than $264 million.

"While we were expecting a different outcome and believed the state had a strong argument, we respect the court's decision", said a statement from the New Hampshire Lottery. She has already donated a combined US$250,000 to Girls Inc of New Hampshire, an empowerment group for girls, and three chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger, which provides meals for school children during the weekends. "That said, we will consult with the Attorney General's office to determine appropriate next steps regarding the case". It is the first of what her lawyers said would be donations over the years of between $25 million to $50 million during her lifetime.
