Are you kidding me the only side the pool.
Megan how many stories could we do about these lottery pools I guided that extra innings and I did and that's the old days of Kelly's court -- show the -- -- on the platform shoes that's true.
Here it's the same thing this woman is acting with no moral compass whatsoever.

And oral agreement they didn't donate the money to where there was a reason why they relinquished their hard earned.
Dollars to her that was the agreement as you go there and you purchase now I would say have a discussion up -- about whether you're going to purchase.
Well and they didn't they did they said don't buy anything personal and she went ahead did so at her own apparel pay up.
But reality who also misses the days of the strippers and Kelly or -- is it is it it is it put a bowl as big as these the group a beautician is now claims.
That they did sit down and say now don't ever buy one for yourself individually at the same time you buy one for the pool.
I would love to see that written somewhere on and -- and not a piece of paper on the back of a Snickers bar.
You know what what look what I love about these cases I wonder if this same woman came back and say well you know.
We each all a million dollars if suddenly these same people would say that they might take it back at the -- -- it that's your ticket.

Three people that we're not part of this pool who used to be part of the pool who have nothing to do with this will testify on top of the seventh -- told looked at me.
People to say that they all have an understanding that you don't buy personal ticket you want to win yet are you wanna bet that that he would have bet that three people hung out with a seven.

The facts and it's not.
That is such a wonderful question but unfortunately in this country that -- we're no longer an adversarial system.
Every thing's settled because a restraining order is a great equalizer because you've got eight people staring at nodded at million dollars saying.
I don't want that money and they can't have it here until somebody wins or they settle and they don't want to give it all to the lawyers so unfortunately.
They will cave it will saddle there we move on.
