  7. Mrs. Nettles:

    I am not an attorney, but I believe that until the judges come back with their decision, we just wait. If the judge rules in our favor we either get ready for trial or the negotiations begin. Remember we have the most feared law firm working for us. Be patient. Civil lawsuits take awhile. (3-5 yrs.) The defense attorneys have to spend their client’s money first so the client will think they are doing something. Once the judge rules we will know where we stand. Until then keep calling your AG, Your Representative or Senator to fire Grief and protect consumers in this fiasco. Bring attention to this cause in any way you can! That will help. Get your friends in the Media to start asking questions of the State reps and tell them to follow the money!! I was getting requests for donations from Abbott, but I replied that until he helped us by firing Grief, and protect consumers instead of remaining silent, I would not be contributing. Make your voice heard. You cannot just sit back and wait. Make some noise with your elected officials! Tell them you won’t support them or contribute money in any way. Remember the “greasy wheel”. Elected officials don’t like bad press!

  9. K Smith

    KEEP UP THE HARD WORK! Everyone who is doing what they can…thank you very much!!!

  28. Kimberley Sohn

    If you are looking for an update, look to the top right of this page, under Recent Posts. Contact your attorney’s office if you did not receive the update yesterday through email and make sure you are on their email list.

  29. Dane Warren

    Has anybody heard anything about the hearing? I feel it will be good news for us since GTech is guilty but you never know these days

  30. Did gtech ever provide a ticket they deemed winning? It would be great to see if it even existed.

  31. Iowa District Court Judge Karen Romano refused to dismiss the case Wednesday. The suit is the first against the Multi-State Lottery Association over a jackpot-rigging scandal inside the organization.

    Romano says the association and the Iowa Lottery aren’t immune from the lawsuit filed by Larry Dawson of Webster City, Iowa.

  32. sm

  35. H~

    Any news yet ???

  36. Manuel Teque

    great website and on topic

  37. JVW

    I’m going to claim the victory! Faith is essential in this future blessing. Expect what has been taken, denied, stolen, from all of us. We’re favored by God to be represented by a dynamic, persistent, determined, highly respected team of attorneys. My line of thinking is- a loss for us will be the result of the time taken to win, that which, we were already owed…God have mercy

  38. N

    Any word from the court hearing yet?

  39. williejcollins

    Hello everyone,
    Just a new comer saying, let the people we will pay set the tone on what is to be done by and when. Sometimes, doing nothing but waiting patiently is the BEST STRATEGY!!!! Since I have no
    Iexperience in the world of courts, I think that I will do what the Lanier Office suggest we do….. WAIT ! When it is our time to activate, the Lead Attorney will advise US on what to do and when to do it.
    Be Cool All and Reap the Benefits of a REAL PROFESSIONAL ATTORNEY.. Peace and Have a Great Holiday Season

    • J smith

      Wat a wonderful job by our attorney mr.Lanier that’s y I strongly feel like we will be treated wat we are owed just be patient yall read if you haven’t

    • Well said, “Mr. Collins”!

      • J smith

        I agree cause almighty God has blessed us with powerful angels to represent us it might not not be cause you want it but we’ll get it when we need it God’s in control.

  40. Copeland fitzgerald

  50. Ronnie Collins

    To all our Attorneys and Ms Nettles Happy New Year. Thank you all for your hard work. May God continue to bless you all and your families. Also, to all the Fun Five Clients Happy New Year

  51. Linda

    Please be prepared that even if we win g-tech can appeal which will hinder any settlement. That may take more time. We hope and pray that our attorneys will be able to leverage that option.

  52. Kimberley Sohn

    Could we please receive an update?

    • J smith

      HI I would like to first wish everyone a happy new year. I know we all are waiting. I don’t want to rush the judges. Actually, I have faith we will win. Now on that note let’s just hope they are out of appeals cause right now I feel they are just dragging it out. Their pockets are deep to do that. But in all due respect the courts can make it final. They have been givin multi times an opportunity and so far failed. So think positive. We are in good hands with our attorneys. So stay positive and keep praying. This is it. February is around the corner. Just pray for trial as scheduled. God please bless us all.

      • The trial will not go forward in February as planned earlier. The trial court judge issued an order putting everything on hold until she hears back from the court of appeals. That is a reasonable approach. We are hoping to hear from the court of appeals in the near future. We will post news of the court’s decision on this website as soon as we receive it.

      • M.E. Farris

        JUST came across your case, read all of your comments. I’m NOT an Atty and because of that, I in no way intend anything, hereafter, to be construed by anyone, to be legal advice. Having been there, done this many times, having crossed swords standing with the best Solo-Practitioner in Texas, in my opinion, against the best Civil Litigators in Dallas, and the herd of Lawyers they flew in from like, NY, I can tell you, we never got, “poured out,” usually we won ! How? Just like I believe you guys are heading, from my reading your comments, as to how things are moving. I BELIEVE your Lawyers are providing, excellent representation. FIRST, I can guarantee everyone, you would NOT be this far along, if you did not have excellent Legal Representation. I’ve not seen one document, have no idea who your Lawyers are in this case. The KEY is, as has been said by many of you, many times, “BE PATIENT.” Wait and let the process work for your Attorney Team and for you. They must have filed some excellent Discovery, Admissions and Denials, et. al., on your behalf. You have come to far, do NOT allow decrial to creep in amongst your group’s, will to win. Understand, the Defendants had to initially Notice their Primary Insurance Carrier’s Attorneys, of your Notice to sue. Then, the Primary, without fail, had to Notice their EXCESS CARRIER, who then plugged in their, Excess Carrier Attorney Team. So, this all has to, ‘gel,’ so to speak. In my opinion, their Excess Carrier Attorneys are calling the shots, due to the exposure involved. All of this has to, boil down ! LISTEN to your Plaintiffs’ Attorney Team, do as they tell you. Again, please be patient and know, many times, these battles end, outside the Court, on a pew, by Defense Lawyers, (not wanting to go before a Jury), agreeing to go tell the Judge, “We have reached an agreement, to SETTLE.” Judge tells them to, “go draw it up,” gives them time for some Attorney to go draw up the Settlement Proposal, for the Judge’s Approval, which usually happens soon afterwards, because the Judge is NOW happy. Judge now gets to CLEAR his or her Docket, w/o going to Trial ! Now the Judge can verbally notify which ever group of Lawyers sitting at #2, on the Docket.., that THEY are now, UP TO BAT ! Which I can tell you, can be a, chilling announcement, for the Lawyer(s), not READY. Best of luck to each Plaintiff and by all means, keep Praying for God to Bless your Lawyers with wisdom and patience, too. Again, I believe you to be, in good hands.

        • J smith

          Thank you we are not in a rush and we do pray and thank god for the wonderful attorneys team we have fighting for us .

  53. J smith

    OK thank you I thought we were pass the appeals court but I thought wrong OK thank you again for yall hard working and all the bleeding on your recovery

  54. Kim

    Of course.

  55. Dane & Emma Warren

    Thanks so much for the information. I agree, that sounds reasonable. I want to thank the entire legal team for all you have done and continue to do in our behalf.

  56. Mike R.

    Well said, M.E. FARRIS. Patience is the answer. Along with GOD, who hears our prayers.

  57. Cruz & Soledad

    Well we are a little disappointed with the judges, that they are taking their time to decide on a verdict. having patience is the only thing we have, but how long to we have to wait?

  58. Jon J

    Thank you to the Lawyers and everyone else involved in this case. Keep being positive and stay strong because Gtech better realize that we arent going anywhere and we will continue to wait out this process until the lottery players get what they deserve!

  59. Solcruz Gallardo

    How long do we have to wait?

  60. J smith

    I know we are all are waiting just keep the faith and remember no news is good news .and also remember g tech has the money to ass around .what I find hard to believe with all this lottery fraud going on why someone hasn’t put a stop to it .I believe one reason they claim they donate to college funds and other organizations but at least be fair about it .this is highway robbery.and I strongly feel we have the great attorney team to get their behinds in line the day will come sooner than we think please don’t give up we are going to fight till the end .let’s just hope the appeals court not in this other politics stuff cause that is a true wreck lol

  61. D

    I want to remind everybody that you will have a VOICE with you VOTES. FYI – Gov. Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, AG. Ken Paxton will be up for Re-Election as well as others in Texas. The 2018 general election will be held in the U.S. state of Texas on November 6, 2018. All of Texas’ executive officers will be up for election as well as a United States Senate seats, and all of Texas’ thirty-six seats in the United States House of Representatives.
    So far NOT ONE official that I am aware of has stepped up to the plate to open the door to Protect the Lottery Player’s. Currently the 85th Legislation is in session. This would be their opportunity to get something done. I have looked thru the current bills that have been submitted for review/vote. The only thing positive I have seen is a bill for the Lottery to stream live their Commission meeting’s which was one of the requested changes to the Lottery. But they left out on this Bill to be able to call in or email your for comment’s while they are in the meeting. So Please speak up with your Votes next year!

  62. Thank you, Mr Farris, for all your information. Yes patience is what we all need at this time. I’m going through very hard times as a lot of other people.
    When This first happen my youngest son got colon cancer, took Chemo, and we
    Thought this had worked, he seem better for about 7 months and then it came back with a vengeance.
    I have only 6 month to a year with my youngest son now , I lost my daughter at 42,
    uterine cancer. I still have faith and do Believe in Miracles.
    I get on my knee’s and ask God for a miracle for my Son, Every nite and to take his suffering from him. To lose one child is bad But too lose 2 is unbearable.
    I ask for all Bloggers to pray for my son, and God bless all our attorneys!

    • J smith

      Sorry to here that md.linda my condolences is with uou along wit prays just remember god has the last say so not man I’m going threw it wit my dad he has bone marrow cancer so I feel your pain but trust in God and he a see you threw

    • Linda

      God has the final say….keep praying and thanking him for your son’s recovery. God can heal him and you. Bless You!

  63. Mike R.

    Bless you, Linda W. God does work in mysterious ways. God Bless you and definetly your son.

  64. Solcruz

    Linda our prayers are with you and your family. so sad that this friday we will not have our court day. i hope this judges speed up thier verdict. we want what is rightfully ours so we can enjoy it now that we are alive. can any one knows how long does a lawsuit like this takes. it’s going to be three years in september.

  65. Gwen

    Ms. Linda W I will pray for your family.
    Just keep the faith God will prevail!!!!

  66. Disgruntled Texas citizen

    Class action lawsuits can take 2-7 years..
    If not longer..
    What ever decsion comes down from the appeals court.
    I’m sure there will be another appeal from either us or Gtech so this case will more than likely go to the Supreme Court .
    They can either hear the case or go with the lower court ruling.
    Which will take longer
    So this will be a few more years before this case is settled.
    We just have to be patient.

    • J smith

      Will I feel different I believe it will be sooner than soon and it want make the supreme court

  67. susan black

    Well now I have to say something first this lawsuit is unreal it is a sentence,and has taken a lot of court time already. I do believe in being patient,but this is to the point of just plan crazy. Everyone of us in this lawsuit have dreams of what they could do with money and having dreams is why we bought the cards. NO one should stop dreaming of better days, but also having people stop dreams so they can have more money in their pocket has to stop.
    I think what I need right now is to be truthfully told what is next and is it going to be appealed again?, and truthfully how many times can it be appealed? Do we have a chance of winning? Are we all dreaming for something that is not going to happen?

  68. I want to thank everyone for all your prayers for my Son, your prayers and comments, have help me to keep having hope and keep my Faith in God.
    God Bless You All and thank you so much, I do Believe our prayers are answer!
    Have a nice weekend,
    Linda W.

  69. J smith

    Thanks for the update and I really appreciate you all hard work but this is a lesson will learn I just hope they don’t forget about the case once again thanks and may God be wit us all

  70. Mona

    I feel the same way Susan. When will the back and forth stop..Even if it’s decided they can be sued, it’s another waiting period because they can appeal and the same on our end if the decision is not in our favor, then we can appeal..It’s crazy if you ask me.. When does the appeals stop..especially in our case.. it’s been decided twice that GTECH can be sued if I’m remembering correctly..

    • J smith

      Yea I wounder the same thing but remember they have the money to drag on for decades we just have to pray the judge put a stop to it like they did in the Donald Trump university case .but I’m sure mr.Mark Lanier know the proper steps to take and I strongly feel no news is good news just can’t wait for it to be anouced so maybe it’s on the way keep praying we will pervil

    • RSVP

      There’s no way this should take as long as it has taken. What worries me is that G-Tech has deep pockets. If we win they will appeal and if they win we will appeal. I guess this can be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court. Our lawyers are doing a great job but their hands are tied with the court system .

  71. Solcruz Gallardo

    why do my posts take long to be posts?

  72. J smith

    Everything was going as plan until it got close to February 17th and they wasn’t ready there trying to hide something are buy they way out of it judges please don’t fall for let justice be served. They already lied to the elected officials once cause they relied on them telling the truth until they seen the tickets wild (Humm )

  73. RS

    Does anyone have any idea when this might go to court . Could it be 1month, 1 year, 2 more years ? They say it could take years with all the appeals etc.. SAD !!!!

    • J smith

      WI’ll we all just have to keep our faith if you have true faith you autta feel good it will not take 3 more years just keep praying I no we all are anxious it’s coming it’s like when you call on God he may not come when you call him but he’ll deliver when you need him and I know we all can use wat we are owed and I know some of us are struggling but if you believe in God then just watch his work

  74. J smith

    Will I tried to get at least a hit on appeals respond so I goggle it but for wat I read I guses it’s a different caeses and it don’t reply to ours a cording to it its mostly 90 days after the appeals and here we are going on six months the appeal was oct.26 will just keep praying for the best.I personal starting to feel this wild election has stalling our case .but I still have the faith as I say all the time hopefully no news is good news and may bless our attorneys thank all of you again .

  75. Solcruz

    should we start looking what to do, if we died before we go to court. is the ticket transferable to our children?

    • J smith

      I’m sure your children are spouse can claim it depends on I guess hoo else on your paper work

  76. susan black

    look another holiday coming up happy st patty day

  77. J smith

    Yes that’s very intresting kinda like wat I been following wit the Donald trump tweets . You guys watch’s a very interesting station and you can see how the politicstion work how sad .how they cover up for each other threw right are wrong that’s why all we can do is put it in God’s hand no man is behold over god .
