Lottery winner takes son to court for not getting any of the dough
It seems every-time the lottery comes around, it is time and time again proven just how greedy people are. According to Y!, a California mother has sued her own son for not sharing the lottery she says she has rights too.
Almost a year ago, Etta May Urquhart and her son Ronnie Lee Orender won a lump sum of 32.3million before taxes (lottery was actually $51million). One might think the family would be overjoyed, paying off bills, buying a fancy new car, and maybe even doing a little investing — alas that isn’t the case at all as Y! notes that Mrs Urquhart has taken her son to court over claims that he spent all of the families luckily earned lottery winnings.
Court documents revealed that her son was actually the one who signed the winning ticket, even in front of lottery officials. So some, may just say that Ronnie is actually the one who is the rightful owner of the 10 cars, 4 homes, and numerous investments he made [what a smart, lucky guy -- at least he invested. More earnings for him].
