So a New Jersey construction worker won a winning lottery ticket worth $38.5 million that he claimed he bought with his own money not the money from the lotto pool he was in with fellow coworkers.
Now, a jury has found that he must pay out $2 million to each of his five co-workers, pre-tax.
The man who bought the ticket, Americo Lopes, left the courtroom cursing in Portuguese saying he had been robbed.
Well buddy, when you took your co-workers money you agreed to the pact.
Wow, people are greedy.
