If I was a sleazy lawyer I would encourage the envious employees to sue the winners even for flimsy reasons. Then I would arrange with the lawyer who represents the winners to fight back hard thus earning himself  33% cut of the prize money. I would lose the case but I would secretly meet up with the lawyer that won the case and confirm a wire transfer to an account in Cayman islands is complete. Then I could join politics. But I am not so I won't so I can't Shifty

That money's gone fo ever

    Have to agree with Haugh. Divide the $$ by 19. Give the 12 their share and let the other 7 prove themselves. If they can't the escrow goes to the 12.

      I wonder how many of those lawsuits would have been dropped if the judge had announced that any persons that failed to have legitimate claims would have to pay not only the lawyer's fees for each legitimate winner but would also have to pay each legitimate winner daily interest on the monies they would have had if the award had not been delayed by their frivolous lawsuits. Wanna bet how many liars would've jumped ship? Smash

        The United States Motto is "In God We Trust"

        If this motto could be given any seriousness or removed from the facade that it really is, because I do not believe that the United States Federal Government and the United States Courts have anything whatsoever to do with any God, let alone trust in one, as I believe that both establishments see themselves as the gods of the land, then a queue for the resolution to this controversy could be taken  quickly from the Biblical Parable of the 10 Virgins found in Mathew 25.

        The biblical resolution provided, is that the five foolish virgins who did not have oil in their lamps have no share in the bridegroom. Along that line of a resolution path, those pool members who did not front the money to buy the ticket pool that won, have no share in the prize won, unless agreements, culture, tradition and past  verifiable experience within the pool allowed for a sharing across all pool members, regardless of  each pool member;s payment status

        Anyway since the pagan courts have the law to work with and the moods of the pseudo-deity judges, as the real laws by which they actually  work with,  it will really be interesting to see how it all pans out. Based on the present culture and nature of the Courts, the non-paying pool members may very well be rewarded some by the mostly dishonorable courts within these United States,  and the attorney that practice in them.

          I believe that an incredible and dis-proportionate number of lawyers, and sworn priests of the courts, do exactly these sorts of vile things everyday and all the time, in American Courts, across virtually all complaints types possible, and regardless of the lawyer's oaths that they took upon admission to the State Bars that admitted and empowered them to practice law.

          I would say that in the trinity of the Dentist, Lawyer and used-car sales person with his exaggerations, the lawyers and their hypocritical suits, are at the bottom of the canonization scale, while the dentist and the used car sales person are almost equal.

              I Agree! remember the group in Piqua Ohio they were on LCML. They had coworkers file a law suit but loss cause they had the documentation to prove the 14 players that paid.

                The overwhelming majority of pools that have won have no problems and the fact that so many pools win show that it is a sound strategy because it allows for you to have much greater chances of winning due to the fact that so many numbers and combinations are being played. There is nothing to stop you from playing your own numbers on the side also, but to not join in a pool if you have the chance is kind of idiotic. As long as it is set up properly, even if there are problems, eventually you will get your money. 

                If these guys get $7 million each, awesome, even if they get $5 million each that is still great. They can still retire and live very well regardless. 

                I Agree! A messy win is BETTER than no win.

                  The problem is some of the people joining the pool are thinking by playing infrequently they have as good of a chance of collecting part of a big prize as those playing regularly.   Many pools will cave in and share rather than waiting a year or two to collect their money and wasting much of it on court cases.

                    I must add that there are far more many many many Good, wonderful, kind and honest Lawyers, Dentists and Used Car sales persons out there, than there are of the bad ones. Like the old saying going, "A few bad apples appear to make the rest bad"

                      wrong again ronnie. pools are for fools. even if you think you have an ironclad person(s) running it. especially with work people who would just as soon stab you in the back if you got a raise and promotion that you felt you should get. you cannot trust co-workers 100%. being in a pool just to get extra tickets doesn't even marginally improve your chances and is nothing but headaches since it involves losing continously and non-gambler murmings arise that goes something like this. oh, i have to cough up another 10.00 twice a week, (this is starting to get expensive) so some drop out creating issues if you do win even a smaller prize. lo and  behold if you are the one buying the tickets and somehow buy a ticket(s) independent of the pool and it wins expect deep seething hatred and jealousy at the very least and a couple of lawsuits to boot. stick to family member pools (if you trust them) if you must, but going solo is by far the best option.

                        If we distribute a partial payment to the orignal pool members they will split town and won't pay the legal bills.  Let's drag this on and on so the lawyers will make a killing.

                        Plus, the judge works for the Illinois Government. 

                        Plus, the Federal and Illinois Government weren't displeased that this gets pushed into taxes being taken out at the MUCH HIGHER RATES than 2012.

                        Plus, we don't even know if any of these additional seven folks put exact monies due into this, exact, lottery drawing's tickets purchases.

                        Oh, oh ... Illinois!  Oh, no big lottery pools! Thud

                        Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!
