Lottery Winner Can Remain Unidentified, Judge Rules
Judge rules $560M Powerball jackpot winner can remain anonymous
14 March, 2018, 00:51
A judge ruled Monday the woman can keep her identity private because the judge had no doubt that she would suffer an alarming amount of harassment and solicitation.
Temple allowed the woman to maintain her anonymity through the monicker "Jane Doe" but ruled that the woman's hometown can still be made public by the New Hampshire Lottery Commission.
She was identified as "Jane Doe" in the lawsuit against the New Hampshire Lottery Commission that said all Powerball jackpot winners are required to provide their names, town and the amount won as public information.
The woman signed her ticket after the drawing, but later learned from lawyers that she could have shielded her identity by writing the name of a trust.
Judge Charles Temple is presiding over the bid by New Hampshire lotto victor "Jane Doe" to preserve her anonymity in Hillsborough Superior Court.
The lottery says that while it respects the judge's ruling from Monday, it plans to talk with the New Hampshire attorney general about what to do next. The judge also found that her hometown "must be disclosed pursuant to a Right-to-Know request".
The judge had already ruled last month that the victor could start collecting funds while remaining anonymous as the issue played out in court.
The highly anticipated ruling capped a legal saga that began January 29, when Doe sued the Lottery Commission for the right to remain nameless when she claimed her windfall.
Her attorneys released a statement on Monday saying the victor lives in Merrimack.
"If I told you she was ecstatic it would be an understatement", Shaheen said in an email to CNNMoney.
The court had allowed Jane Doe to claim her prize through the Good Karma Family 2018 Nominee Trust facilitated through the law firm with Shaheen serving as trustee while awaiting the ruling.
"Rather, after considering the record and the arguments, the court finds that Ms. Doe has met her burden of showing that her privacy interest in the nondisclosure of her name outweighs the public's interest in the disclosure of her name", Temple wrote.
The woman is collecting a lump-sum cash prize of $352 million, which will get whittled down to $264 million after taxes. Attorneys for the victor have said she plans to donate between $25 million to $50 million during her lifetime, beginning with donations of $150,000 to Girls Inc. and $33,000 apiece to three chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger.
