Tossed $1 mil ticket lawsuit gets a trial date

A new trial in a lawsuit over a $1 million dollar scratch-off lottery ticket that wound up in the trash — only to be picked up by the woman who eventually claimed the money — has been set. Trial will commence Oct. 18 in Searcy, with a pretrial hearing on Sept. 17.

In July 2011, Sharon Duncan bought the scratch-off ticket at a convenience store in Beebe, but apparently threw it away after an automated scanner said it was not a winner. The ticket was picked up by Sharon Jones. Back in May, a judge ruled that Duncan was entitled to the money and that Jones would have to pay back over $190,000 she'd already spent, but the case was later ordered to a new trial.
