$560m US Powerball victor allowed to remain anonymous

The winning ticket was sold at Reed's Ferry Market in Merrimack, N.H., for the January 6 drawing.

The victor of a US$560 million Powerball jackpot - one of the largest prizes in United States history - can remain anonymous, a New Hampshire judge ruled on Monday.

He said there was "no evidence" that the New Hampshire Lottery Commission was engaged in corrupt activity and noted that the winning numbers are drawn in Florida anyway.

Judge Temple said in his ruling that he had "no doubts whatsoever that should (Jane) Doe's identity be revealed, she will be subject to an alarming amount of harassment, solicitation, and other unwanted communications".

D L Carlson Investment Group Inc. lifted its position in shares of Tesla by 11.7% in the fourth quarter. (NASDAQ: TSLA ). It fall, as 93 investors sold TSLA shares while 134 reduced holdings. 83 funds opened positions while 258 raised stakes.

However, the commission argued that it was required to disclose her name and hometown as the information was already written on the ticket. They said she was upset after learning she was giving up her anonymity by signing the ticket - something the lottery commission acknowledged isn't spelled out on the ticket, but is detailed on its website.

Doe's lawyer, William Shaheen, revealed she is from the town of Merrimack, 30 miles south of the state capital of Concord.

"She was jumping up and down", Shaheen said of his client's reaction to Temple's ruling.

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.

Ronaldo scored twice, his second six minutes from the end, as Real won 2-1 and avoided another slip-up in La Liga. That leaves him with 18 goals in the league, third behind Luis Suarez with 20 and Messi with 24.

Temple found that the commission's argument that revealing her name to ensure the public she's a "bona fide" lottery participant and "real" victor was not persuasive, because a trustee claiming a prize on someone's behalf is certainly not a "bona fide" participant or a "real" victor.

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

New Hampshire Lottery Executive Director Charlie McIntyre said in a statement that the commission was "expecting a different outcome", and that it will discuss "appropriate next steps" with the New Hampshire attorney general's office.

As for the ticket, Doe's attorneys lobbied the judge to grant her a do-over. 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.
