Quest for lottery winnings comes to an end

Lawyer drops claim so not to identify his client, the ticket purchaser

Apparently, $14 million wasn’t enough for one claimant to come forward to collect his or her lottery winnings.

In December 2011, Crawford Shaw tried to redeem the multimillion-dollar winning ticket on behalf of his client. But Shaw refused to identify the winner he represented, and the Iowa Lottery took issue with that. Lottery officials tested and validated the ticket, but wouldn’t pay out the winning millions until Shaw made good with the client’s name.
