-- -- new controversy after an Arkansas woman.
Threw out her winning Lotto ticket.
And she still ended up collecting the one million dollar jackpot -- list -- Sharon Duncan.
Says that she checked the ticket in the garbage.
After a ticket scanner.
Read out not a winner -- -- while this is garbage -- through the garbage -- and Sharon Jones.
Collected a ticket from the trash she's done this before she got a whole bunch of -- And she goes back through them.
And she got the million dollars but now a judge deciding with a woman what originally made the purchased put establishes -- these folks okay judge in an -- Fox News senior judicial analyst tonight and as I sit down in a break finders keepers us in the constitution right well and almost an hour it's -- Nation and the image so while the land in all fifty states this particular judge.
It's tough for me to second guess -- the cited in testimony but this particular judge in Arkansas.
Apparently wants to change the law at least in that state the general law is when you throw something away when you put it in the garbage -- giving up your ownership rights to act and if the garbage is in a public place as unseemly as this is.
People may come and go through the garbage and lawfully own.

Original owner of the ticket sue with the lottery company and say eight years Skinner is in ballot it I had a million dollars and it told me I had nothing.
Absolutely and as a result of -- reasonable reliance upon your telling so -- wasn't a winner I threw away a million dollars and therefore you know.
The manufacturer of -- campaign that's only the million dollars that would be a result consistent with the laws of wolf that these states rather than as this Arkansas judge.
Has chosen based on the facts in this case to change the law in Arkansas I predict.
There will be an appeal here and a different outcome because this is so radically different is it.
They will only and I moment garbage pick -- this store owner says that this is the super one stop store manager she says.
That she hit -- a sign that said do not take.
On the garbage can telling people that they weren't allowed to garbage pick in that store.
At this the what is visit that's how I wasn't there at the time relevant not relevant I don't think the -- is is relevant and it took something.
You're giving up your ownership.
Way but more power to learn their people and let you record in Dick Armitage tickets is scared -- and then one day we'll but yet the narcotics --
