yup here just googled it.
After five hours of mediation on Monday, MacInnis and Reddick agreed to share the money. Reddick’s lawyer Adam Rodgers said she will receive $261,319 from MacInnis, leaving him with $350,000 and Reddick with $872,639.
She sued him and he agreed on it
$1,200,000 between the two of them. $600,000 each. Both will be taxed 37% by the IRS leaving them each with the remainder of $378,000.
The aunt is not extremely old, nor is she in her prime. Their was no mention of her having children, just the close, loving relationship with her nephew.
I'm assuming, since she is going to waste money on a lawyer, she will not be investing. If all she walks away with is her current winnings, she could live with a budget of $25,000 for the next 12-15 years, still low income bracket.
The future holds...
No one care
Why is it always horrible people like this that win the lottery. Lady, do you not realize you just got $600,000 and so did the kid you considered a “son.” How much more greedy can you get?? Human beings are absolutely disgusting.
if you are wondering what ended up happening in court, they settled on the nephew having only $350,000 and the greedy Aunt with $800,000. They both wanted it behind them. i hope she gambles all of the money away within a year.
Would love an update on this... never seen a woman so unhappy to get a check for 600k. Whether or not she had to split it... she put his name on the back, verbal agreement or not, it's all he-said-she-said. Personally I hope the nephew got to keep the money.
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
