Victor of $560M Powerball jackpot can stay anonymous, USA state judge rules

13 March 2018

Temple wrote, "Given that any [female] person in Ms. Doe's hometown could potentially be the victor, it is highly unlikely that Ms. Doe could be identified as the victor exclusively based on the disclosure of that limited piece of information".

In her lawsuit, she said that disclosing her identity "would constitute a significant invasion of her privacy", and that previous winners have been "victims of violence, threats, harassment, scams and constant unwanted solicitation". 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.

But if she wants to keep her hometown secret, Doe's considerable luck may have finally run out. "This personal information is exempt from disclosure under the Right-to-Know law".

Lawyers for the state did not immediately announce whether they would appeal Temple's ruling.

William Shaheen, a lawyer for the woman, had accepted a check for a lump sum of $352 million, about $264 million after taxes, reports said.

Doe, Gordon said, "had a great deal of stress throughout this process, and this decision was helpful to address some of that stress".

She sued the New Hampshire Lottery Commission on January 29 for the right to remain anonymous when she claimed her windfall.

And since Doe signed the ticket with her actual name before one of her attorneys she retained afterward told her she had forfeited her anonymity in doing so, the judge didn't think the New Hampshire Lottery Commission made a good case that it would have denied her winnings if a trustee's name was on the ticket instead of Doe's. But lottery officials had argued that even if the cash goes into a trust, the ticket will have to be submitted in its original form - complete with the ticket buyer's name and hometown.

"She got every bit of his money", Florida Assistant State Attorney Jay Pruner said in closing arguments during her trial. The commission said any adjustment of the ticket would make it invalid.

The judge ruled the New Hampshire Lottery Commission can not release the woman's name or address.

"While we were expecting a different outcome and believed the state had a strong argument, we respect the court's decision", Charlie McIntyre, commission executive director, said in a statement. "That said, we will consult with the Attorney General's office to determine appropriate next steps regarding the case". As part of their bid to keep her name out of the news, Doe's attorneys created a trust to shield her identity and asked the commission not to identify her. His family members said the public announcement of the lottery winnings had made him a target.
