Lawyers for Powerball winner to claim $559M jackpot for client

Attorneys for the woman, dubbed Jane Doe in court filings, and officials from the state Lottery Commission will hold an 11:30 a.m. press conference in Concord, where Doe's legal team will accept the prize and "make an announcement regarding the winner's charitable plans", the statement said.

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.

In court papers, Shaheen, a former federal prosecutor who is married to New Hampshire Governor Jeanne Shaheen, had asked a judge to allow the victor to amend her ticket to show only the name of a trust.

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".

A Powerball lottery sign displays the lottery prizes at a convenience store Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018, in Chicago.

Weaver also notices that many female lottery winners are keen on anonymity: "Thankfully theLotter is experienced in handling such privacy-related requests"., a messenger service which legally purchases lottery tickets for overseas players, has helped people win $115 million Cdn. since 2002: late 2015 an Iraqi client won the $6.4 million United States jackpot in Oregon.
