$560m US Powerball victor allowed to remain anonymous


The winning ticket in the January 6 market was sold at the Reeds Ferry Market in that town.

The victor sued the New Hampshire Lottery last month under the name of Jane Doe, in a bid to collect the winnings through a trust to protect her anonymity.

William Shaheen, a lawyer for the woman, had accepted a check for a lump sum of $352 million, about $264 million after taxes, reports said.

The mystery victor of the $560 million Powerball jackpot can remain anonymous, a judge ruled Monday, saying the New Hampshire woman's right to privacy outweighs public interests.

New Hampshire lottery rules have required the winner's name, town and amount won be available for public information, in accordance with open-records laws and to increase trust in the lottery system.

Judge Charles Temple is presiding over the bid by New Hampshire lotto victor "Jane Doe" to preserve her anonymity in Hillsborough Superior Court. He ruled, however, that her hometown can be released publicly. He did rule, however, that the woman's hometown can be publicly released, as it was "highly unlikely" that the woman could be identified as the victor exclusively based on her hometown. Following instructions from the New Hampshire Lottery Commission's website, Doe signed the back of her ticket with her name, phone number and address.

"She will be able to live her life normally", he added.

Should her identity be revealed, "she will be subject to an alarming amount of harassment, solicitation and other unwanted communications", Judge Charles Temple of the Hillsborough Superior Court Southern District wrote in a 15-page decision.

Attorneys for Doe last week collected the winnings on behalf of her Good Karma Family 2018 Nominee Trust.

"While we were expecting a different outcome and believed the State had a strong argument, we respect the court's decision", McIntyre said.

The commission says it will consult with the attorney general's office to determine what to do next regarding the case. 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.

Her lawyers said she intends to donate between $25m and $50m to charities during her lifetime.
