Indy Hairstylists Fighting Over $9.5 Million Lotto Jackpot
The attorney for a group of Indianapolis hair stylists says it remains unclear how a battle over a $9.5 million Hoosier Lottery jackpot will be resolved.
Scott Montross represents seven workers who claim they're entitled to their fair share of last Saturday's multi-million dollar winning ticket they believe a co-worker bought as part of an office pool. However, that woman says she bought the winning ticket separately and not part of the office pool. A Marion County Civil Court judge granted Montross and his clients a temporary restraining order that freezes the money until the workers can either decide amongst themselves what to do or leave it up to the court to decide. Montross says there is no later court date scheduled as of yet.
Ultimately, Montross says it's up to the woman to prove that she bought the winning ticket separately. The salon is located on the east side of Indianapolis.
