Estranged husband of N.Y. Lottery winner to sue for his share

New York LotteryNew York Lottery: Estranged husband of N.Y. Lottery winner to sue for his share

Rating:

The estranged husband of the Irishwoman who won a $21.5 million New York Lottery jackpot is set to sue her for his share of the winnings.

Patricia Daley Eisel's divorce from her husband, Jamie Eisel, was not yet finalised at the time of her win — which worked out to $8 million after taxes — in January.  (See Long Island waitress wins $21.5M Lotto jackpot, Lottery Post, Jan. 28, 2011.)

They separated a year ago, after 13 years of marriage, and he is now living with a new partner. Patricia and Jamie have three children together.

The New York Post reports that Jamie Eisel is the subject of $8,000 worth of claims by three banks and the state, according to court records.

Daley Eisel was working two jobs — as a waitress and a babysitter — when she drew the winning six numbers.  She should have been back in her native Offaly at the time, but bad weather meant her flight home was cancelled, and so she ended up spending Christmas in New York — where she played the lottery on a whim while doing her grocery shopping.

According to the Irish Echo:

Having won seven dollars on a previous lottery draw, she revealed how she asked the teller "What's on tonight?'". He said, "Powerball and Lottery". "I added a dollar to my $7 ticket and said, 'Give me a $4 quick pick on both'."

She was doing her laundry the next day when she decided to check her numbers — however, it was another three weeks before she claimed the money.

I got nervous, I didn't want any attention on my kids and I wanted to think.

Lawyers told the New York Post that Jamie Eisel may be entitled to up to half the winnings. "Generally, monies that are from the lottery are deemed to be marital monies. It's subject to equitable distribution in New York," attorney Marilyn Chinitz said.

However, Irish Central reports that Eisel's co-workers at the Saloon Bar in Long Beach say her ex-husband shouldn't get a share.

One waitress told The New York Post, "They had a contentious relationship. I bet [Jamie's] sorry now. She looks better than she ever did. She looks like she's glowing."

Eisel said at the time her win was a godsend.

"I have been in America since '95. I babysat at first and right now I live in Long Beach. I waitress and bar, tend and mind kids.

"It's a struggle to keep it all together but it's good — the bar's good where I work. But this is going to make it a lot better."

She has sworn "to keep life normal, no big purchases." She even said she'd keep working "for a while."

    Congrats to Patricia.

      people should just stop getting married then....

      however she said she was in  America  sense 95".  oooo so by getting married she got her self a "get out of jail free card" so to speak, and got to stay here forever then?  both stories was not clear on that for me,

       

      sense must people don't know this,

      but you Don't need the state to grant you the right to marry someone

      , for 100+ years people got married in usa before the Sate started "granting" people the right they already had, to get married

      ,   they called it Common-law marriage

        ,  you just record it in your family bible so forth back then,   by getting married today, Bam, you just signed a contract with the state, and ever law that applys to "state/govt" married people must obey when <snip> hits the fan

       

      its really silly, people go to the govt at ever point to get something they already had, they already had the right to marry, its just they wanted it to be form the "all powerful gods" of the govt,

      back then, people thinked only god was the one to marry people, now its the govt, LOL,  anyway anyone who get married by "govt" deserves to be robbed of half their winnings, even thro this guy clearly does not deserve it

        @ Josh

         

        Yes, I've always thought that the government shouldn't be regulating marriage.  At least the Feds, but States too, for the most part.

          This is unfair they shouldn't award him half of her winnings, but then again how long would it be before he's back where he is broke to the bones, he is just greedy

            Since they had been separated for a year and it seems as though she has the kids, he shouldn't get anything. If he had/has the kids then it would be a different story but that doesn't seem to be the case.

                They separated a year ago, after 13 years of marriage, and he is now living with a new partner. Patricia and Jamie have three children together.

                The New York Post reports that Jamie Eisel is the subject of $8,000 worth of claims by three banks and the state, according to court records.

                 

                If the courts HAVE to give Jamie Eisel anything, they should ONLY give him $8,000 AND make him pay back child support plus interest if any.

                Once again greed rears it's ugly head. It is obvious that he moved on with his life. After all he is shacking up with his new partner.

                Patricia Daley Eisel deserves the best for herself and her children. If there is any justice in this country, greed will not win out.

                I wonder, if Jamie owes three banks $8,000, how much does he owe the loan sharks?

                  people would be all over the guy to give her half if he had won. Don't want to share a big jackpot with your ex? Get a divorce before playing.

                    He shouldn't get anything . They both agreed to go their own ways a year before.  If I agree to leave a year or even a week ago , am I entitled to come back and get half of your belongings , furniture , clothes etc a year later . She bought the ticket , he paid nothing for it , she signed it not him , it belongs to her.

                    He lives with someone else now. He had no intention of returning to his ex.  Also if he had won , do you think his new interest would let her have half ??

                     

                     Good Luck,

                    Blackie.

                      Pay him half and then hit his A$$ up for child support!

                      If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                      You never know when you will get another hit.

                          all true but u have to remember that getting married is a business arrangment also, if they really wanted to cut all ties to each other they should have ended the license they have for one another loooong time ago!!
