Lubbock woman loses lawsuit for share of lottery winnings

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock woman who sued to get a share of a $36 million jackpot has lost.

Betty Domingo was part of a "lottery pool" in her office. Betty and a group of six other women regularly bought lottery tickets together. The tradition started in March 2004 and continued until the winning jackpot was drawn on April 26, 2006.

Sometimes, Brenda Mitchell would pay for Betty Domingo's tickets and Domingo would pay her back. But Mitchell said she didn't have enough money to buy Domingo a ticket from the winning batch, so the jackpot was to be split six ways instead of seven.

Domingo went to court to get a share of the jackpot, approximately $2.9 million.

Now, five years later, the issue has finally been resolved. A State District Judge in Lubbock released the last of the money on Oct. 4, to be distributed between the other six women.
