Lawyers for Powerball winner claim $559M prize

A Powerball lottery ticket is printed on a lottery machine at a convenience store in Dallas in a file

"My client doesn't want any accolades. She just wants to do good things".

The bigger prize for media outlets remains the woman's name, but she's suing the state for the right to remain anonymous. She is from southern New Hampshire. Jane Doe was the 11th Powerball jackpot victor in New Hampshire history - and her massive payout is the biggest in state history.

She wants a judge to order her name withheld from public records requests, or let her replace her name on the ticket with a trust that she's since created.

"While we respect this player's desire to remain anonymous, state statutes and lottery rules clearly dictate protocols", said the New Hampshire Lottery Executive Director Charlie McIntyre in a statement in February. But at theLotter we also refrain from publishing surnames of winners if those winners prefer to remain anonymous.

Meanwhile this week, United States news outlets reported on "Jane Doe", the victor of the largest Powerball jackpot in history.

The lawyers say she signed the back of the ticket following the drawing, the nation's eighth-largest lottery jackpot, without realizing it would result in her name and address being made public.

However, recent studies on adolescents showed that they were exposed to at least five toxic chemicals that could lead to cancer . E-CIGARETTES could increase your risk of cancer even when there's no trace of nicotine , experts have warned.

A lawsuit filed by her lawyers says she is an "engaged community member" who wants to go about public life "without being known or targeted as the victor of a half-billion dollars".

The victor bought the ticket at the In & Out Market on Jerusalem Avenue.

"And the public wants to see that the person who wins maybe looks like them or comes from humble means". Several have gambled their winnings away, including a two-time lottery victor who ended up living in a trailer.

Two large jackpots are on the line this week, with both the Powerball and Mega Millions offering jackpots well into triple digits of millions of dollars.

And there are numerous examples of people who've tried to swindle lottery winners out of their newly acquired cash - or take the money by force. If there is no jackpot victor, the amount grows even larger for the next drawing.
