Stupid judge...split it....
Say what? Split it between the finder and her attorney. The one that threw it away, threw it away. Too effing bad. Sober up before you sort your lotto ticks next time. The claimant is the one who signed the back of the ticket
Credit card, bank card records?
Not sure about ARK, but most places lotto is cash only
Of course, that notion went away along with the concept of "bearer" bonds. You can thank the War On (some) drugs for that, along with the IRS' desire to find every nickel that is or might be due to the fedguv.
If Ms. Jones hadn’t told anyone that she picked the ticket out of the trash, would Ms. Duncan have been able to make the claim?
Doesn’t matter if she got it from the trash or found it blowing in the wind, it’s hers. The store brought the suit thinking they could claim it, then the supposed buyer jumped in. Ms Jones and the lawyer will split this 2/3 to 1/3. No one else has a valid claim
How lazy and stupid does somebody have to be to ask a store clerk to check their tickets to see if they won?
Loosers weepers, finders keepers.
Sounds reasonable to sane people but we are talking about Judges!
Hey wait. I am the owner of the ticket. I lost it. NO I threw it away, yeah that’s the ticket.
