I could almost get her being miffed. Almost. If there is only one other sibling and he got preferential treatment, I can see why she would wonder, even feel hurt.

But good God, not upset or vindictive enough to make up a story and sue him over it. I am so happy she's going to have to cover those legal fees. Instead of making do with the $25,000 she's going to end up with less than she had before. Now that's poetic justice. 

 

p.s. love your name.

Thanks :)

 

This lady really flipped her wig. Her brother may not have been done sharing. The 25k could have just been the beginning. Instead, she will likely end up in debt after the lawyer submits his bill.

    That's almost a certainty. Maybe she got hers on contingency and didn't need to pay him anything unless she won. But court fees and her brother's lawyer fees for 3 years of litigation? She'll probably have to file for bankruptcy by the time it's all over. I wish we saw more of those kinds of outcomes here. The parasitic lawsuits need to be at least curtailed if not stopped. 

    I totally agree with you. I thought the same thing. That chances are he would have given her more at a later date. I don't think if she ever had a financial issue he wouldn't have helped her, but now...she'll end up with less than nothing. Serves her right.

        I hope she learned something from this.  For one thing, you need to pick and choose your battles.  The lottery money seems to rightfully belong to her brother, and I think it was pretty obvious to just about everyone especially the judge.  There was no way that this was going to end well for her or this family.  Someone would be upset no matter what the court decision was.  It's a lose-lose-situation!

          I agree she should have controlled her emotions and not gone off the deep end.

          Most of these types of lawsuits are contingency based as the majority of those seeking these frivolous litigation tactics usually have no assets for a retainer.

              Did i read it right? This case actually went on for 5 years? WTF! It's obvious she was full of crap from jump street. Did it really need to go on this long? And was the money frozen for that amount of time? I'd now sue her for emotion distress.

                Now he can really enjoy his money. However it is unfortunate to have a family feud because of money. I do hope that someday they can forgive each other in the future. It is so difficult if one gets so greedy because of money.
