    A woman who won $1m was sued by family for 50% as they bought the ticket. So on today's Judge Ross show a woman who played the lottery for the 1st time and won $1m was sued as she refused to share the prize.
    This was her ticket as she played her DOB+SSN and won! The other couple were playing 5 years, and offered to buy her a ticket.

    However, she took her family to Florida, and these fine folks ordered champagne+food to their room costing $1000 but the woman was billed for it. Strangely, the woman signed a note stating she would share any prize won with the couple, but when she won big she refused to do so.

    The judge dismissed the case, and called the plaintiffs greedy. Lesson is dont ask no one to buy you lottery tickets.

    By your recap it sounds like she didn't ask them to buy her a ticket, that they offered to...

    But that said, I think the actual lesson with the lottery is always going to be: it makes everybody greedy - it can tear families apart and turn a lifelong best friend against you. Everybody will come to you with their hand out: friends, family, charities, people you've only loosely known at work, people you haven't seen in 20+ years... and they all take it the most personal and negative way if you say to no to giving them money.

    The above was so amply demonstrated on the recent ESPN show on all those millionaire athletes that are now broke. Family and friends came out of the woodwork with their hands out when they got their million dollar contracts. Now that they are broke, they don't call anymore. I felt really sorry for Bernie Kosar. He got screwed over by his father. :evillaugh
