Judge orders new trial in $1 million dollar lottery ticket dispute

Posted By on Thu, May 24, 2012 at 12:42 PM

White County Circuit Judge Thomas Hughes ordered a new trial in the dispute over the ownership of a $1 million lottery ticket today, Fox 16 reports.

The judge's three-line order came, Hughes wrote, "after reviewing the actions of counsel appearing in the case."

Three weeks ago, Hughes awarded the lottery winnings to Sharon Duncan, the woman who claimed to have purchased the winning ticket at a convenience store in Beebe before discarding it when she said the ticket scanner did not indicate that it was a winner. Sharon Jones redeemed the ticket last July after she said she found it discarded in a waste bin.
