Tony Diaz Assists in Powerball Dispute Resolved in Court

Several years ago, in 2013, a Mexican man was delighted when his lottery ticket was picked as the winner for a Texas Powerball – the prize was $2 million. He wasn’t a a U.S. citizen, however, and believed that this prevented him from collecting his earnings. The man asked his neighbor to claim the prize for him and what seemed like an ideal arrangement eventually soured.

When the man’s neighbor picked up the $2 million check, she failed to tell him that non-U.S. citizens can indeed collect on winning lottery tickets, according to a lawsuit later filed by the winning man. He also claimed that the neighbor kept a large portion of the money for herself.

Lawsuit Leads to Confidential Settlement

The man and his neighbor spent three days in trial in state district court. On the third day, they were able to reach a compromise through a confidential settlement. The neighbor was represented by our firm’s own Tony Diaz.

Attorney Diaz pointed out that, “It’s a wise thing to resolve issues.” He was happy with the outcome achieved on behalf of his client and feels that the ordeal was settled in the most effective way possible.
