Lottery winner wanting anonymity WILL get her money

The New Hampshire woman who won a $559.7 million Powerball jackpot and is fighting to stay anonymous will get her money while the legal battle continues. The New Hampshire Lottery Commission yesterday (February 15th) approved the payment to a trust the woman set up. Under the state's Right to Know Law, lottery winners have to be publicly revealed. But the woman argues she signed the back of the ticket after the January 6th drawing without realizing it would lead to her name and address being made public. Her attorney argues that it's not legally permissible to force the woman to choose between giving up her jackpot or giving up her anonymity. Her attorney said, "She is a longtime resident of New Hampshire and is an engaged community member. She wishes to continue this work and the freedom to walk into a grocery store or attend public events without being known or targeted as the winner of a half-billion dollars."
