Lawsuit: We Threw Out $1M Lotto Ticket

• newser.com
Two New York men don't have to imagine, because they say it happened to them—and that it was New Jersey's fault. Salvatore Cambria and Erik Onyango are suing the New Jersey Lottery Commission, alleging that it failed to update its website with the winning numbers in a timely fashion on March 23, 2013, the New Jersey Star-Ledger reports.

When the pair checked their tickets against the website, they thought they'd lost, and threw out their winning ticket, reports the Journal News. They eventually realized their mistake, but lottery officials told them that without a ticket, they were out of luck, according to their attorney. The men say they can "prove" they bought the ticket, because they bought three tickets with consecutive numbers.
