In California the retailer gets money also and all tickets have a time and date on them.

Let's assume they can state when and where they bought the ticket, which would be pretty good evidence they had the ticket at some point.(At least unless someone else in the coming months comes forward with it....) The media don't usually report the place and the exact time of sale. Usually just the approximate geographic place or maybe the name of the store.

So they claim the NJ Lottery site was slow to update the winning numbers.

This means they could not properly read the date of the game being reported on the website, but they could accurately read a string of six or seven meaningless, supposedly random numerals properly....

They could have recorded their numbers as non winners before ditching the ticket; lots of people are obsessive or superstitious.

I'd want to know if the web site was slow to be updated, what that means, whether that time was longer than it normally is for the NJ Lottery or for other state lotteries, but I'm initially thinking they made the error, not the Lottery.

Yet you are the one who has not addressed anything specific.

The question is not whether the ticket is gone - it is, the men say.

The question is whether the ticket is gone due to some breach by New Jersey's Lottery or not.

Now, I understand that witless cretins who harp on the whole Birther-Kenya thing are going to need help from time to time, but the distinction I just explained for your benefit really is very trivial, and you posting just, "Bearer bond," was incomplete and off topic...at best.

Bearer Bond.......... bond payable to the holder.

In finance, a bond is an instrument of indebtedness of the bond issuer to the holders....it is a debt security, under which the issuer owes the holders a debt and

now the question is ...... State declare a winner for a million

and what about the multi-winners ...another scam

That plagiarized drunkalogue did not touch on the aspect of a bearer bond that the other poster was invoking, namely that you have to present the thing physically. It's not a receipt - it's the thing itself.

But that's not relevant because there is no question about the ticket being presented by these two men, anyway. The premise is that they don't have it.

Burp.

Again, you have added exactly nothing to the discussion in the way of any thought, Birther. We've been over the bond matter.

The question is not where the ticket is. The question, to whatever extent there is a question, is whether the NJ Lottery failed to perform as it should contractually, and thus had something to do with the ticket being discarded prematurely.

Drunk, you're on a nasty bender this morning.

The issue of verifying whether they might have bought the ticket has been dealt with in previous posts. I think you can't or don't read - too busy plagiarizing.

I've stated no firm opinion on whether they have a claim (I've expressed skepticism,) but I did 'splain for the tee baggrz and racist Birthers exactly what the claim is.

Like him or not, someone who tries to imply that Obama is not highly intelligent has long ago rotted away his or her brain in an alcoholic stew. That's just absurd.

research info....

The men could prove they had the winning ticket because they purchased it in a package of three and Onyango kept the two tickets immediately before and after the winning one, Logan said. They also regularly played the same numbers at the Mahwah 7-Eleven store, he said.

Logan said lottery officials recently told him that his clients would not be able to claim the winnings without the actual ticket.

“In order to claim a winning ticket, one must possess a winning ticket,” New Jersey lottery spokesman Judith Drucker said of the lottery’s general rules. Drucker said she could not comment on pending litigation.

amazing you keep two and throw away the winner .amazing indeed

You have not understood one single thing here.

The case did not hinge on whether they had the ticket. The admitted they didn't. That was the premise.

The case hinged on whether the NJ Lottery failed to live up to some routine or contractual practice regarding its website and the posting of winning numbers.

It is not surprising or would not surprise me if it is finally concluded that the state did live up to its obligations as far as posting numbers.

But that is a different issue from simply whether the men had the ticket or not. It would be easy to imagine a scenario in which a state website posted the _wrong_ numbers as winning...and a ticket holder who tossed his ticket on that basis prevailing.

So the question was: Did NJ mess up "sufficiently"? Apparently the non surprising answer is, "no."

You tee baggrz neither wish to grasp anything nor can grasp anything. The bulk of you hold that the earth is thousands of years old, after all. And the remaining ten percent fall into the Birther category. What a scourge on educated society the anti rational are.
