Mega Millions, Powerball jackpots for Tuesday and Wednesday total $738 million

Mega Million, Powerball Lottery Jackpots Continue To Grow, Surpass $318M

The winning ticket was sold at Reed's Ferry Market in Merrimack, N.H., for the January 6 drawing.

A judge ruled Monday that a New Hampshire woman who won a Powerball jackpot worth almost $560 million can keep her identity private, but not her hometown.

She was identified as "Jane Doe" in a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Lottery Commission.

The ruling issued Monday by Judge Charles Temple of New Hampshire Superior Court said disclosing the woman's name would be an invasion of privacy, but that her hometown can be released publicly.

The judge dismissed the state's argument that disclosing her name would show the public that the lottery system is above board.

"If I told you she was ecstatic it would be an understatement", Shaheen said in an email to CNNMoney.

Temple wrote the New Hampshire Lottery Commission "would have permitted the trustee of a trust to fill in the back of the ticket and claim the winning prize had Ms. Doe not already filled in the back of the ticket", according to the resolution. Identified in court documents as Jane Doe, a woman who bought the winning ticket there won the $559.7 million jackpot and has filed suit to preserve her anonymity.

"Her word to me was that she is ecstatic about the court's decision", said Gordon, who co-founded the high-powered Shaheen & Gordon law firm with Bill Shaheen, a former United States attorney in New Hampshire and husband of Senator Jeanne Shaheen.

"With another major winter storm in the forecast, personal and public safety are top priorities", said Michael Sweeney, Executive Director of the Massachusetts State Lottery in a written statement.

New Hampshire lottery rules have required the winner's name, town and amount won be available for public information, in accordance with open-records laws and to increase trust in the lottery system.

The website did not identify the woman shown in the video but described her "as a lobbyist for various municipality groups ". Pictured, Republican Iowa Senate Majority Leader Bill Dix on his wedding day with then new wife, Gerri Dix.

The judge also rejected the lottery commission's argument that the woman's name should be revealed to assure the public she was a "bona fide" lottery participant and "real" victor.

Just last week, the commission distributed to the winner's attorneys the $264 million sum, which includes taxes that were deducted.

The commission says it will consult with the attorney general's office to determine what to do next regarding the case.

The woman who was described as an "engaged community member" plans to donate $150,000 to Girls Inc. and $33,000 each to three New Hampshire chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger.

The woman's lawyers argued her privacy interests outweigh what the state said is the public's right to know who won the money.
