Despite the fact that the numbers WABC-TV broadcast were wrong, the suit asserts, it compounded Daniele's alleged pain by "negligently, carelessly, recklessly and/or intentionally" rebroadcasting the erroneous numbers the next day.

 

The key to her lawsuit is the rebroadcasting of the wrong numbers again the following day!

Right, what other "news" has incorrectly been reported by journalists who refuse to double check information BEFORE reporting/broadcasting! BS

      I think all of you that say the lady is stupid for the lawsuit are JEALOUS!!! I think she SHOULD WIN the lawsuit!!!! The news stations should NEVER have broadcast the wrong numbers the first time, and DEFENITLY shouldn't have done it the next morning! If I was her, I would be going for $500,000 - My $250,000 that I should have won and $250,000 in damages by the station!!!

       

      FACE IT... you all are just hating because it didn't happen to you... your JEALOUS!!! And anyone else that should have won... even for a $1 should be in on the lawsuit. Teach the TV station a lesson!

       

      Oh and about her trying to get rich quick or looking for quick cash... obviously ALL OF US are in for the same if you play the lottery.

        True that!!!!

        ALso, the regulations require that the ticket holder get the ticket "validated". That is the Key to this lawsuit. The state will counter and remind her and the judge of this. Her case will be dismissed with NO compensation.

        The newstation will receive a harsh reminder that broadcasting does require accuracy. They really should have done a retraction and a public announcement of the error to clarify things.

        Our station that airs it had that same glitch, within ten minutes they aired the CORRECT numbers and made a public announcement that they are responsible to have their tickets validated thru the state lottery system.

        My validation would be the numbers matching what the TV station broadcasted. What if she had no other means to validate the ticket?  That "ticket validation" crap is them trying to cover their own @ss.

        Your KEY to the lawsuit is simple... the TV station is guity of NEGLIGENCE! The station failed to correct their error in any REASONABLE amount of time, and in the process caused her pain and suffering.

              No other means of validating the tickets? Are you kidding me? How about calling the lottery winning numbers line? How about going on line? How about going to a retailer to have the ticket checked? How about checking the numbers in the newspaper?

                I've heard that combinations like 1-2-3-4-5-(6) are extremely common, and tens, hundreds, if not thousands of people (depending on geography and popularity of the game) play that kind of combination. If the judge did allow that suit to go through, he may set a precedence that results in many more people following 'suit' (pun intended) and trying to cash in on and easy court award.

                     How about the pain and suffering I suffer every time they announce the pick 3 number and I didn't have it? Or I do have it but on the opposite drawing?  Crying

                      If she had NO OTHER MEANS, this could possibly be not having a phone, or having a computer to go online, or maybe a car to get to the retailer. There are people out there that don't have these things. Either way, she was still under the impression she won.

                      Before you judge the stupidity of others... I suggest you judge your own.

                      Like I said before.... PURE JEALOUSY!!!!Thumbs Up

                        If they announced YOUR numbers, and then they came back and said "oh sorry, we messed up. Those weren't the winning numbers, you really didn't win." I think you would be pretty pist off yourself. And probably be suing as well.

                        I feel sorry for you, I truely do. And I think that has happened to a few of us. Which is why I ALWAYS play the same numbers.Crying

                        Just not having the right numbers is painful, but nobody caused you to believe that you had the winning ones... which is what this case is all about.

                          A SCAM??? She did nothing wrong! It was the station that is in the wrong...

                          And your right, she probably did eventually have it validated as worthless, but was still AFTER the station led her to believe that she was a winner.

                              I have watched the evening news and have seen the pick 3 and pick 4 numbers on the news crawler at the bottom of the screen and known they were wrong. How did I know? Because I had called the lottery winning numbers line earlier in the day. So yes, the station goofed. It does happen. However I DID NOT have any "pain" from it. (I was trying to be funny in my earlier post.)   So this just proves once again what many other LP members have said before. Check your tickets yourself and sign the ticket, before giving it to anyone. In case of a large amount verify the numbers more than once.
