Report: $560M Powerball winner losing $14K a day in interest, attorney says

Wednesday 19:08 GMT

A New Hampshire woman who says she won a $560 million Powerball jackpot in January is losing about $14,000 a day in interest as she fights a legal battle to remain anonymous, according to her attorney, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports.

"Time is of the essence in this matter," said the attorney, Steven Gordon, who is representing the winner known as Jane Doe in court documents. "For every day that a resolution is delayed, Ms. Doe loses approximately $14,000 that would be generated in interest on the after-tax cash prize amount of approximately $268 million."

New Hampshire Powerball winner argues for privacy but to also receive winnings

Wednesday 21:53 GMT

NASHUA, N.H. -- A New Hampshire woman who won a $559.7 million Powerball jackpot should be able to collect the winnings soon while a judge decides whether to let her remain anonymous.

A judge in Nashua heard arguments Tuesday from lawyers for the woman who say her privacy interests outweigh what the state says is the public's right to know who won the money in the nation's eighth-largest lottery jackpot.
