After learning the news, the group of stylist called attorney Scott Montross who filed a restraining order to freeze the money. The court action wasn’t against Shaw, but only to keep the jackpot from being paid out.
“We are concerned that the winning ticket may have been purchased with the group’s money,” Montross tells The Indy Star. He also added that each co-worker contributed $5 each for lottery tickets, and they agreed that whoever bought the tickets for the group couldn’t buy tickets for themselves in the same place.
After hearing both sides of the testimony, Marion County Superior Court Judge, Heather A. Welch will rule on the case by the end of the week, The Indy Star reports.
