Stop crying - you were robbed and it was your own dam fault. He knew he had the winning numbers and let some dill-weed tell him otherwise - tough titty said the kitty. Not the states fault your an idiot! Unemployed man says he'll sue Lottery Commission over stolen $1 million ticket | Local News | S... By APRIL CASTRO The Associated Press AUSTIN — A 67-year-old unemployed man who lost out on a $1 million jackpot when a store clerk allegedly cashed in his winning lottery ticket and skipped town said Wednesday that he will sue the Texas Lottery Commission for the payout unless he gets his money. Willis Willis "should not be forced to sue to collect his prize," one of his attorneys, Sean Breen, wrote in a letter to the commission. Willis and his attorneys are scheduled to meet with the lottery’s general counsel Monday. A commission spokesman declined to comment. Pankaj Joshi, a former employee of the convenience store where Willis bought his lottery tickets, is accused of telling Willis that a $1 Mega Millions ticket that turned out to be a $1 million winner was worth $2. Authorities said Joshi cashed in the ticket, then disappeared, possibly back to his native Nepal, after receiving about $750,000. He is charged with claiming a lottery prize by fraud. About half the money has been recovered from U.S. banks. Prosecutor Patricia Robertson said some of it will be given to Willis. Willis, who has been playing the same set of numbers at the Lucky Food Store in Grand Prairie for about 10 years, said he is unemployed because of health problems and needs the money to help pay medical bills and send his daughter to college. "Millions of people just like Mr. Willis play the Texas lottery with the assumption that the system has a foundation of integrity," said Randy Howry, another of Willis’ attorneys. "It’s time for the lottery to accept responsibility and restore everyone’s faith." Willis said he still plays the lottery but at a different store.
