Follow up to the winner fighting to keep her anonymity. Looks like the judge has granted her access to her winnings as he decides the issue. I think this works in her favor.

The mysterious winner of a $560 million lottery ticket in New Hampshire has finally claimed her prize, through her legal team, but she is still fighting to keep her identity a secret.

William Shaheen, a lawyer for the woman who has thus far remained anonymous, accepted the check for a lump sum of $352 million, about $264 million after taxes, reports said.

The first thing he did was give a total of about $249,000 to a couple of nonprofits Girls Inc. and three chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger and said the woman plans to give away as much as $50 million in the future.

I just see another whiny nobody using the court system to get her way, despite the clear rules that were in place before she decided to play the lottery.

And yet, this is why we have a court system. If the judge rules against her the decision reinforces the rule and precedent. If the other way, it's a victory for privacy.

I see no whining here.

The very nature of her not wanting to follow the rules and then deciding to sue because she doesn't like the rules of the game she willingly chose to play is whining.

If she wanted to keep her privacy sacred she simply could have not played the lottery. Since she chose to she should abide by the rules.

Laws are not the 10 commandments. They can be changed, if impractical or wrong. I think it's stupid to have to declare your name at what would be the most inopportune time. It's not like people read the fine print, no one actually expects to win.

Agree, she has the right to challenge the existing rule/law and is pursuing it through the state's legal channels. I'm sure her lawyers have crafted a cogent argument. Let the judge decide.

Reading or not reading the fine print is a personal choice. Big Boy Rules.

You don't have to declare anything until you're ready. In fact the smart people that win get a lawyer and set up some sort of trust before stepping forward. And they usually wait until the hubbub has died down.

She's weak. It would be a great day to have a quarter billion in the bank account and to have all the shitheads come out of the wood work asking for a handout.

Shit head family: get fucked
"Old college friend": get fucked
"Old college girlfriend": say something about how time hasnt been kind to her and then get fucked
HOA: I'm buying the entire neighborhood. Everybody but these people*reads list* I own your home, get off my compound. Get fucked.

It would be like the movie "Half Baked". "Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, your cool, fuck you, I'm out!!" I'd have to hire some of you to assist in telling people to get fucked.

I specialize in that particular skillset. Let me know when you win.

Had you in mind. Your proximity to my former job and your propensity for "red neckery", seemed like a good fit.

Rules are merely guidelines. It's a stupid rule: you have to expose yourself to every underwear-sniffing psychopathic weirdo so some stiff from the state lottery commission can pose with you for one pic with a giant fucking check, then disappear back to his miserable life of anonymity, while you have to hire half of Academi to protect your life? Please.

No you don't because you don't have to play.

The lottery depends on people winning from time to time to give credence to the system.

If every win was "anonymous LLC" people would stop believing real people were winning.

Right. So if we're in a restaurant with no-smoking policy I can sit down next to your kid and fire up a stogie because it's just a rule?

If you disagree with the rules then don't play. You have no right associated with playing the lottery. They have policies. Accept to them or go play blackjack. Welcome to adulthood.

This brings up a question as to whether the rule is administrative or codified as law. From what I've been able to glean from a quick search the rules for some states fall under administrative codes while others are legislative (South Dakota for one). Perhaps that's the argument her lawyer is making, that New Hampshire does not have a state law or regulation that mandates giving up her anonymity.

Hope some of our counselors-at-large can put meat on this nave bone.

Few states allow for anonymity in lotto winning. I would still believe that some human citizen won the prize if all lotteries were claimed by an LLC. States all have rules regarding those being started by a person, and an LLC is still going to be paying that tax.
