Broken Lottery Promise Leads To Lawsuit

 Broken Lottery Promise Leads To Lawsuit

Where big money is involved, there will always be those whose greed overcomes common sense and sound moral judgement. A man from Queens in New York is now suing a friend over claims that he allegedly abandoned a deal for sharing the lottery prize they had won. Read further for the full story. 

Broken Promise

The man who opened the case goes by the name of Terry Hollenquest. Terry stays in the Ozone Park area of Queens, New York, and has made the decision to represent himself in the court case as he tries to prove that a deal was indeed made between himself and the man living next door to him. The man next door goes by the name of Leonard Owens, and the deal allegedly made was to share any lottery prize worth over $100,000 whole they were still neighbours. 

In the month of June, 2015, Mr. Owens managed to win a prize worth $1,000 per year for life on a “Win $1,000 A Week For Life” scratch card. However, it was alleged that he did not carry out the deal as agreed upon by splitting the winnings with Mr. Hollenquest. 

According to Mr. Hollenquest, the agreement made between himself and his neighbour was made on the 6th of July last year (2014) and was even sealed with a handshake. The two men were very dedicated lottery winners and would both spend the sum of $50 every day on lottery draw games and scratch card tickets. 

Nearly a year later, Mr. Owens miraculously won the top prize on the New York Lottery’s “Win $1,000 A Week For Life” game. Mr. Owens scratched off his lucky ticket on Saturday the 27th of June. He did so whilst sitting peacefully in a local park. Funny enough, Mr. Owens explained to lottery officials upon claiming his winnings that he nearly fell off the bench he was sitting on when he discovered his blessed win for life. 

The winner, Mr. owens, decided to take the lump sum payment from the New York Lottery which amounted to a fabulous sum of $1 million before taxes and fees were taken. It left him with just under $500,000 in prize money, which is a lot more than the amount agreed to be split. 

Agreement

When Mr. Hollenquest asked his neighbour, Mr. Owen, about their agreement and if they were still on board, Mr. Owens told him that he actually did not want to share the prize, nor did he plan on sharing it in the future. Mr. Owens even told lottery officials that he was going to spend the winnings on himself to enjoy them, to help his wife retire, and to pay off some of his bills too. 

Mr. Hollenquest on the other hand, was very angry and felt betrayed, as you can imagine. He is now suing Mr. Owens, the winner, for $300,000 in damages and hopes to be luckier than Indianapolis winner’s ex-wife who unfortunately wasn’t successful in suing him for more than half of their winnings. 

Argument

Well, folks, these things happen. A verbal agreement and a handshake is not enough. When it comes to big money, people are always very unpredictable, and whatever agreements you have with someone, you need to have it in WRITING and SIGNED! 

Or better yet, don’t waste your time making any deals with anyone. YOU own your own luck and fortune; don’t share it with anyone else. Once you win your big jackpot prize, then you can decide with whom to share it. But always be on control of your money first and foremost.
