Daughter accused of stealing mom's lottery jackpot starts collecting winnings

New York LotteryNew York Lottery: Daughter accused of stealing mom's lottery jackpot starts collecting winningsRating:

The woman?? who's being sued by her? ?Brooklyn ???mother?, who says she stole her $1 million lottery jackpot?,? got a lucky break Thursday as? ?a judge? ?gave her back? ?access to some of the? ?loot.

Mom Barbara Quiles, of Bath Beach, initially won a temporary restraining orderblocking her daughter Linza Ford, 22, from accessing the funds — as well as a safety deposit box containing $50,000 in valuables.

But Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Martin Solomon lifted that order, allowing Ford to collect this year's annual installment of $31,152 on Nov. 15.

Ford, though, is prohibited from selling the future lottery installments pending the outcome of her mom's suit, according to an agreement hashed out in court.

"If you lift the TRO ... she can go ahead and go sell the ticket," Quiles' attorney Dayrel Sewell insisted.

"She can't transfer the ticket. She gets her next payment and that's that," Judge Solomon said firmly.

Quiles sued Ford in May, saying she allowed her daughter to claim the jackpot in 2012 under the agreement that the older woman would have full access to the earnings.

The mom said she was sick at the time and didn't want her daughter to have a problem inheriting the windfall if she died, court papers said.

But instead, Ford skipped town with the money and cut Quiles' cash flow off in April 2014, according to the mom's lawsuit.

On Thursday, Solomon seemed less than convinced about Quiles' allegations.

"Besides your client's affidavit, what proof do you have?" Solomon asked Sewell. "You're really doing big stretches here."

Solomon said he also received an "anonymous letter" that bizarrely bashed Ford as a "bad person" in an effort to discredit her.

Sewell said he had no knowledge of it.

"As soon as I got it, it looked very suspicious," said the judge, adding that he promptly tossed it in the trash.

Solomon also ordered an inventory of the deposit box, which Ford opened on behalf of her mother.

Both women are barred from accessing it until that happens, the judge ordered.

Ford has accused her mom of spending some of the lottery cash on cosmetic surgery – instead of paying for her college tuition, according to an affidavit.

    Apples don't fall from the tree, whatever she learned Mom, she learned it from you.

    Seems like the 2 sides of the story the truth may lay in the middle somewhere.

      Point well taken.  We'll never know about her upbringing!

        Why don't they just split the winnings and be done with it?  Each will have lots of money to try to win again.  Did the store where the ticket was purchased  not have a camera to see who bought the ticket?

          zephbe, I Agree!. Mom thought she had a verbal agreement with her daughter.  Written agreements hold up better in court.

            The store camera may show the Mom purchasing the ticket. 

           All lottery players should dress up for their camera shot when they buy their tickets. LOL

                Aren't lottery tickets are similar to bearer bonds - you bear it (have it in your hot little hands when you cash it in) you own it.  - which would make daughter winner?

                  Correct.

                  Once the adults are over 18, each carries a legal obligation of their own on wins and loss's, assets and taxes.

                  This is not a moral issue. It's a legal one. Oral contracts are tricky, as we are noticing.

                    This is why to option to remain anonymous is very important. Winners come under enormous pressure from family members after a winner's identity is published.

                    We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                        Only in the rarest cases, such as this one: The secret millionaires next door can you keep your win a secret from your family. In that case, the couple didn't change their lifestyle, kept their jobs and lived the same life as they did before the win.  Maybe, just maybe, you might be able keep your win a secret from distant and far away cousins or other kinfolk, but I would wager the news would spread from one family member to another at literally the speed of sound.   You're dreaming if you think you can keep it a secret from closer relatives, especially if they live nearby and have frequent contact with you and know your standard of living.  They'll wonder how a couple who both worked at avg.paying jobs, had kids and barely managed to make ends meet now has a matching pair of BMWs in the driveway...and most people are smart enough to put two and two together, especially if it's known the winner is from that town. 

                        Winners come under enormous pressure from family members....Winners come under enormous pressure from many sources, but if you take a few basic precautions and a few pro-active measures, that pressure can be mitigated and within a month or two, and with the next large JP won,  it will ebb to nearly nothing.

                            Right. Because if mom's (alleged) win hadn't been revealed to the public her daughter wouldn't have been able to (allegedly) steal it after mom had the daughter claim the prize.

                            Is it your fixation or just plain stupidity that makes you post things that are so incredibly stupid?
