  1. Wait.. they each had their OWN ticket??!!! If two people get two tickets, and they each take one, that seals the deal. You OWN the ticket you scratch and that's it!
    Greed.

  2. Man!! I'll never be rich. Can't gamble due to religious reasons.
    Sure could use the cash for my family's medical bills tho.

  3. Sometimes I swear the world has gone crazy and everyone is a greedy son of a bitch. It really is too bad that so many people just can't seem to be decent human beings anymore. I absolutely realize that it's not everyone but if this story turns out to be accurate, we will have yet another example of the ethical flexibility that has become the norm. There are so many people that are selfish, lazy, greedy, perverted, and downright nuts that it feels like modern humanity is coming from the bottom of the of the genetic barrel.

  4. Simple. Can she prove it. Yes or no. Not just her own words. And she has no clue the lawyers on both sides will take most of it.

  5. They each were handed gifts. They scratched their own. Unless they said that any winnings between them will be shared, there's no contract. Shitty what she did, but that's life.

  6. Sounds like the ticket was given as a gift and the boss was the unlucky one. The lady who was given it and scratched it should keep all the winnings.

  7. There hasn't been a dispute like this in Arkansas since a brother ran away from home while his sister's were still virgins.

  8. this is why office pooling is never a good idea. there's no legal way you can fight to get your money unless they sign a contract and thanks to the devaluing of morality today there's absolutely no surprise that people would stab their friends in the back just because they won. personally not only would i fight to get that money back but i would counter-suit for everything they own just to make them realize how much of a piece of shit they are

  9. Chicken crap lawyers . Someone needs to explain to these two stupid people , that they should drop this stupid case . If you involve the courts the lawyers and corrupt state judicial system will end up with most of the money , guaranteed the corrupt system will end up with more of the money then either one of the people who come looking for justice .

  10. The Boss that first gave the tickets is the real owner of the lottery winnings . He gave them the tickets with a verbal clause that they share the winnings now that they have violated that verbal clause he should reclaim ownership of the winning ticket .

  11. THE BOSS GAVE A GIFT, THE LOTTERY TICKETS. SO, HOW CAN THE BOSS PUT RESTRICTIONS ON A GIFT LEGALLY. THIS IS INTERESTING.

  12. SO, THE TWO TICKETS ACTED AS ONE GIFT, WHICH IS PROPERTY. THE PROPERTY TO BE SPLIT BETWEEN THE TWO. THE TICKETS ACTED AS ONE PIECE OF PROPERTY EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE TWO TICKETS. THE PROPERTY WAS NOT DIVISIBLE LEGALLY, MEANING THE TICKETS WERE NOT SEPARATE PIECES WHERE ONE ACQUIRED A PROPERTY INTEREST IN ONE TICKET AND THE OTHER ACQUIRED A PROPERTY INTEREST IN THE OTHER. IF EACH HAD ACQUIRED A PROPERTY INTEREST IN ACCORDANCE TO THE TICKET THEY HAD RECEIVED, THEN ONE OF THEM WOULD HAVE BEEN S— OUT OF LUCK.

    SINCE THIS IS A PROPERTY ISSUE, IT SEEMS TO ME ONE OF THEM STOLE THE OTHER'S PROPERTY, $150,000.00. IT SOUNDS LIKE A CRIMINAL CASE. BUT AGAIN, YOU NEED SPECIFIC INTENT AND MAYBE THE WOMAN MISUNDERSTOOD THE ARRANGEMENT. IT BEGS THE QUESTION WHY THE TICKETS WERE NOT SCRATCHED AT THE SAME TIME WITH BOTH PARTIES PRESENT. DID THE PARTIES AGREE ONCE THE TICKETS WERE GIVEN THAT EACH WOULD TAKE A TICKET AND ANY WINNINGS BELONGED TO THE ONE HOLDING THE TICKET. THIS IS NOT A CONTRACT CASE SINCE THEIR WERE NO CONTRACTS INVOLVED. SO UNDER WHAT LEGAL THEORY WOULD IT FALL UNDER A CIVIL ACTION. I DON'T KNOW.

    THE BEST THING TO DO IS GET THE LAWYERS OUT OF IT SO THEY DON'T EAT UP THE MONEY FOR THEIR ATTORNEY FEES.
    THE ISSUE IS WHETHER THE TWO TICKETS WERE CONSIDERED AS ONE PIECE OF PROPERTY, OR WHETHER THE TICKETS REPRESENTED TWO PROPERTIES WHERE EACH PERSON ACQUIRED A PROPERTY INTEREST IN ACCORDANCE TO THE TICKET EACH HAD RECEIVED.
