    Here's some background on my rant: http://www.cnn.com/2002/US/04/29/big....ap/index.html
    If I was the poor NJ guy who was accused by his coworkers on national TV (The Today Show, CNN, Court TV, etc.) of holding back the winning ticket ($58 million) I would certainly look into a defimation of character suit against them. The poor guy gets the flu and his coworkers go on all these national talk shows and call him a thief (and their lawyer said his name on TV ).
    Hope he sues and takes any money those bitches have! (Sorry, this just really pissed me off.)

    I think he has a better case against the lawyer since he should have known better then to spout of anything without checking all the facts (like if he actually had the winning ticket) [​IMG]

    i can't understand why those people thought they had a winning ticket.

    were i used to work they had some people pool together and someone would buy a bunch of tix every week. he would give them a copy of the tickets he bought. but since they used the same numbers every week all they would need to do was use those old copies to see if they won.

    so it seems the only thing that made these people think they won was that the guy didnt come to work for 3 days?

    without actually having a copy of the winning tick in hand what could be their reason for thinking they won?

    did anyone go to his house or call him before they started accusing him?

    this is crazy.

    ...And after further review, the ticket this man has IS NOT the winning number. Let the bloodbath begin...
