Lawyers for mystery Powerball winner will claim windfall, announce donation

In court documents, the lottery victor asked a judge to allow the lottery winnings to be paid to a designated trust that keeps her anonymous.

The mystery victor of a $560m (£400m) lottery jackpot in New Hampshire has claimed her prize, USA media report.
The woman, who is fighting to remain anonymous through an ongoing lawsuit, is collecting a lump-sum cash prize of $352 million - which will get whittled down to $264 million after Uncle Sam takes his share.
Executive director of the state lottery Charlie McIntyre said the interaction between the anonymous victor and the lottery office hasn't been adversarial.
The woman's lawyers said their client is terrified.
"The last thing we want to do is stand between a victor and her money", McIntyre said. "What little I can say, is that she and her family have had a longstanding commitment to their community and are thrilled to be able to enhance their impact through targeted philanthropy for generations to come".
