SEARCY, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas judge says a woman who lost a $1 million lottery ticket is entitled to the money.
A White County Circuit Court judge said Tuesday that Sharon Duncan should get the prize money, not two other women involved in a lawsuit.
The judge says the issue was not the possession of the ticket but the right to claim the $1 million in prize money.
An attorney for a woman who cashed in the ticket after she took it from a trash can of discarded lottery tickets at a convenience store in Beebe says he plans to appeal the judge's decision.
