A New Hampshire Powerball victor is suing the state's Lottery Commission in a bid to remain anonymous in wake of her $560 million jackpot.

She then contacted a lawyer and learned that she could have shielded her identity by instead writing the name of a trust.

He said he doesn't know the identity of the victor but hopes one of the regulars from the over 100-year-old store in Merrimack won the nation's eighth-largest lottery jackpot, Fox News reported.

Last month a woman in New Hampshire stared at the numbers on her lottery ticket with panic.

Gordon calls her "an engaged community member" who "wishes to continue this work and [keep] the freedom to walk into a grocery store or attend public events without being known or targeted as the victor of a half-billion dollars".

The jackpot victor has now filed a suit against the New Hampshire Lottery Commission, declaring that her right to privacy and safety will be threatened if she has to identify herself while claiming her fortune.

Unlike Minnesota, however, had she signed the back of it as a trust she could remain anonymous. The state is holding its ground.

The unidentified woman wants to remain just that in order to protect her safety, but lottery rules and the state's "right-to-know" law may prevent that.

Her lawyers argue her privacy interest outweighs the insignificant public interest in disclosing her name. The New Hampshire Lottery to CNN Money Jane Doe purchased the lucky ticket on January 6 from Reeds Ferry Market in Merrimack.

The woman has asked a judge to let her keep the money and remain anonymous, NewHampshire.com reports.

Safa said he doesn't know who the victor is, but he does know that she's a local, and he's glad a local won.

New Hampshire is one of a handful of states that permit lottery winners to form anonymous trusts to shield their newfound riches.

Mr McIntyre said his office had consulted the state attorney general's office and that the Powerball winner's ticket would have to be processed "like any other".

"That openness and transparency is important to a lottery so that the public believes that the game is being run fairly", Denton said.

The complaint filed references an incident in which 2009 Florida lottery victor, Abraham Shakespeare, was murdered for his $30 million, ABC News reported.
