Lottery bill scheduled for early hearing in Alabama Legislature

February 9, 2016, 10:31 am ET

A proposal by some Republican lawmakers to allow a statewide vote on a lottery is scheduled for discussion in a public hearing on Wednesday.

The bill, by Rep. Alan Harper, R-Northport, does not specify how lottery proceeds would be used if the voters approved the constitutional amendment.

Sen. Jim McClendon, R-Springville, is sponsoring an identical bill in the Senate.

Jury: Lottery winner must pay ex-boyfriend part of winnings

A jury Thursday ruled that a former middle school teacher who won a $1 million lottery jackpot must pay $291,000 to her former sweetheart, who testified that he handed her the money to buy the winning ticket.

Lynn Poirier, 62, claimed the prize in 2007. Her live-in boyfriend, Howard Browning, 62, sued her a few months later, claiming they had a long-standing agreement: If one of them won a major lottery prize, they'd split it 50-50.

But Poirier gave jurors a very different version of events. She said there was no agreement and that four years earlier she broke off their romance and moved out.
