Wonder what her lawyer is charging her for all this? This looks to me like some lawyer trying to get as much money as possible out of her. All she had to do is add to the ticket " Jane Doe and then another name or institution Trust...Sure they would release the name of the trust with her name being one of the names in he trust, but she could have her lawyer go collect the money and never see the front of a camera. 

Heck she could still right on the ticket. Jane Doe(her name which is already on the ticket) and add, wants to stay anon Trust Fund. So JANE DOE WANTS TO STAY ANON TRUST FUND...Right that on the ticket. You wont be anon but it would be pretty funny.

l *think her attorney/attorneys will charge her the “ going rate”..meaning if you a multi millionaire, you get charged whatever seems fair. Now a M millionaire “ seems fair” is quite different from a blue collar “ seems fair.” Since she is hellbent on keeping her name a secret, her attorneys will ask her to sign on the dotted line & l am willing to bet you soup to nuts, she won’t even blink, and why should she. This is after all, her own doings.The rich can afford to do that.

    "she could have signed the ticket in PENCIL"

    And what good would that have done?

     

    "Sure they would release the name of the trust with her name being one of the names"

    Have you considered that, just maybe, not having her name publicized is what she's hoping for?

    "Wonder what her lawyer is charging her for all this?"

    I can't imagine that what they're charging for pressing her case is very significant in comparison to what they'll be charging to have their names publicized instead of hers if she wins. They probably won't encounter many of the hassles that the real winner might, but I'd imagine that if nothing else they could be getting a lot of phone calls. If it was me I'd want at least enough to cover somebody answering the phone for 6  months or more, but that still doesn't do anything about  the possibility that the legitimate business calls could be disrupted. At the very least it may all be predicated on billing her for a lot of other work stemming from the win.

        Signing the ticket in pencil ALLOWS you to ERASE your name and replace it with the name of the Trust you form BEFORE you submit the ticket (use an ink pen to sign name of Trust).

        Use two trust to claim ticket:

        Put the name of the Claiming Trust on back of ticket.....

        When the media does a search on who owns the claiming trust they wii see it is owned by a Bridge Trust which by law ownership is not revealed.

            PT.... I will respectfully disagree with you on the pencil signing suggestion. Due to the close scrutinizing of the ticket by lottery officials, I would not want to take the chance of having an issue with the back of that ticket due to eraser usage.... Not saying that it would, just not going to take the chance.

            Consider leaving it unsigned and secure it in a well hidden fire proof safe or a place that you feel confident of it's safe keeping at home. Go to your respective banking facility the next day they are open and purchase a safety deposit box, put it in there with some other paperwork or personal items and it will be fine/secure.

            Then again, you can always keep the ticket with you 24/7, order in takeout and live like Howard Hughes until the day you collect. Sulk Off

              Hi!

              When I signed my ticket in pencil.... I don’t press down....

              The signature is light enough that when I erase....you see nothing....there is no trace of a pencil being used

              Yet the signature is dark enough so that it shows up when I take a photo of the tickets (front and back).

                  "The signature is light enough that when I erase....you see nothing"

                  Then you obviously recognize that the signature won't do anything to establish ownership and prevent somebody else from claiming it as theirs if they should somehow come into possession of it.

                  "Yet the signature is dark enough so that it shows up when I take a photo"

                  So we can safely assume that you don't know what Photoshop is?

                    I read that the judge is allowing this ticket holder to claim in trust. And that the judge will later determine if the states right to publish said winner can still be upheld. Can someone verify this as I don't want to mislead on this topic but rather have accurate data for those following this topic. ?

                        SkepticalI'm sure a few and many state lotteries are watching this case extremely closely

                        I hope it works out in her favor

                          Thanks CDanaT. 

                          Most was fluff but the judge did rule in part. So be it.

                            It's HER money.  The issue is whether she can remain anonymous or not and while the court is reaching a decision, there is no reason why she should not be able to access HER money.

                              I agree. Again this is an example of courts applying equitable options. A lot of people are bring misled by lottery websites ( in states where you can claim via a trust, etc,) advising people to sign their tickets and not advising this locks winners into one option. Fair notice is an issue.

                              Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grace.  We will rebuild!
