Perhaps the dentist that would have been putting all those new gold teef in her monkey mouth should consider suing also?  And how about the local Cadillac dealer, not even going to mention all the crack dealers that lost major sales.

 

Matter of fact, I think I will sue........  I'm very traumatized by the sight of this nitwit jumping around in her living room down in the hood screaming at the top of her lungs;  "Baby, oh baby, we done got rich, gonna be moving on up!"

 

sad innit.......

You are a negative racist, guess life isn't going your way and that is why you wrote what you did, I would laugh if it was found out this silly lady is a member of your family, but we will never know that would we

      Wow TexstarJim thats just wrong. Why are you so hateful to the woman? why do you assume she takes crack? 

      Anyways, I dont believe the New Jersey woman should get paid anything by the

      TV Station if they caught the mistake soon after, corrected it and apologized.

      Jim you're wrong man

      That money's gone fo ever

        After reflecting on this issue, and reading all relevant comments,  I am still sure the lady deserves this money,  if only to set an example to those in power.   You are there as a privilege,  as a courtesy to work for us.   You need to do your job correctly and if you cannot,  you must pay all definable fines and damages for any wrongdoing.   Isn't this what the government does to us?   You speed,  you get ticketed.    You steel,  you get probation and it goes on your record,   You  do something really serious,  even slandering someone and you are looking at high fines and possible that it can escalate into more lawsuits with more parties involved.   Why can't the little guy,  the little man have just the same rights that every other Big Guy Does.    Why?

        Little people make up this country and what it does,  stands for,  and has achieved.    We need to be taken more seriously, and given the right dues, regulations, rights, and yes also rules.    Our government doesn't own up to its mistakes but makes sures we do,  even if its not filing a tax return, even though no law exists for it, get my point?

        Therefore,   no one wants to take responsibility, they just want to apologize time after time, and that is not right.   We Americans deserve better than an apology,  we deserve that people do the right thing, the proper thing,  the first time,  and the next time after that,  the next time around too after the first.

        Subsidizing is just for cowardly companies who don't want to assume responsibility for their work.   That to me is mediocrity. We should not allow TV Stations to get a bit of money to broadcast the numbers,   let the OFFICICAL COMPANY do it,  that way they can't say it wasn't my fault,  it was a third parties fault.    cowardice.    I see righ through it,  and you should too.   Supoort small businesses by the way.    They end up helping and giving back more to your local communities, schools, and local life than all the rest of the other cowards that just export the jobs to pay those poor souls working for them oversees in deplorable conditions sometimes,  destestable wages.    I urge you,  buy domestic.    And know who you elect into office.

        Lady,  if that TV station doesn't give you your money,  sue the organization that allows them to televise the numbers, and their upper management too for not having proper auditing procedures in place, and maybe the cable company too for including such shoddy stations in their network,  or not providing time slots for correcting mistakes that should not even happen in the first place.   With all the money spent everywhere on these things,  and the need for good accurate information,  there is absolutely no excuse.    Make them pay up.    You deserve it,   and it will set an example that everyone needs to careful that they do their job right.   Work and do it right, or shut up and pay up.      It's only fair.     Approve

         

        And that goes for Everybody.    America didn't get to where She was and Could still go,   by peopl half a$$ing it, God I hate lazy Americans now who take everything for granted.    DO IT RIGHT PEOPLE.    DO IT RIGHT,   OR DON'T CALL YOURSELF AMERICAN.     Angry    Mad     Approve

          I've said it before......the human spirirt is looking to terraform mars..yet we haven't the technology to broadcast the correct lottery numbers...

          ..of course I agree she is being a complete krotchwaffle about it...Had she gone faint or a sudden provable heart ailment from the exitment of thinking she had won then she could've sued the balls off of them i'm sure

            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.

            I Agree! with you completely,the people who think she should get the boot should  think about it . They deliberately broadcast the wrong numbers, she should get paid. Michigan pull one number on air and  displayed  another on the TV they had to pay both number that night.Thumbs Up

              I am wondering what the case is based on. What does the attorney have to present that was not kicked out in the lower level courts. The story stated that WABC-TV, American Broadcasting Co., the Walt Disney Co. and an unidentified "Jane Doe" are being sued. Who is the "Jane Doe" and why is she part of the suit?

              My heart goes out to this woman but...............

              Maybe there is some meat in this story that was ommitted...........

              Maybe this is a case of pure greed once again rearing it's ugly head.

              I could understand if the official site posted the wrong numbers then came back and changed them.

              I could understand if the lottery terminals validated her ticket as a winner and then the ticket was rejected when she went to cash it in.

              I could understand if the lottery terminals printed the wrong numbers on the results slips.

              But I am in the dark grasping at wisps of thread with this story.

              I am curious to see how this story plays out in the courts.

                        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.

                        Until you study LAW and the definition of Negligence and what provisions must be met to meet  ALL conditions directly in this case, you are best off to stick with an opinion and not deem it negligence. I assure you this case has not met ALL the criteria necessary by legal standards: Duty, Breech of Duty, Cause, Damages. Its harder then folks think and many a case has been lost becuase one of those elements could not be met.

                         

                        KFloyd, I second your perspective of some of the commentary.

                            Actualy, I was  only thinking about the original poster, since they wer so vehement about it. I do find it hard to believe that others also think she's got a case, or even a legitimate complaint.

                            Maybe I'll sue the station for being wrong about the weather.  After all, I made plans to go out an enjoy the nice day they promised, so surely I'm entitled to compensation, right?

                              i don't agree with this. she don't have case. really ! think about it.  if that the case i could sue for a lot of things.
