A New Hampshire woman who won a 560-million-dollar Powerball jackpot wants the fortune, but not the hassle of the fame that comes with it. The woman, who lawyers identified as Jane Doe, is suing state lottery officials over the right to remain anonymous.
In a civil complaint, the woman's lawyers said she "deeply values her privacy" and wants to support charitable causes "far from the glare and misfortune that has often fallen upon other lottery 'winners.'?"
Ms. Doe signed the back of the lottery ticket and also wrote down her address and phone number. She says it was only after speaking with a lawyer that she realized she could have maintained her privacy if a trustee had signed the ticket instead.
- Should she be allowed to keep her winnings – and her privacy?
