Remember The Guy That Missed Out In His Work's $40M Win?
NSW father-of-five, Brendan King, is up for a hefty legal bill after losing his appeal against a judge’s finding that he was not entitled to a share of a $40 million Powerball jackpot.
King was part of a workplace lottery syndicate organised by Robert Adams when he entered to be apart of the jackpot. However, Adams started a second syndicate that King was not a part of.
Brendan King sued the syndicate after claiming that he was in fact entitled to a 15th share amounting to $2.7 million of the May 2016 jackpot prize.
The NSW Court of Appeal dismissed his challenge on Monday. It was ruled that the Supreme Court judge made no error in finding that Mr King was in fact, not a member of the one-off syndicate formed just days before the win.
