Mother sues lottery commission for failing to withhold prize money
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

CRANSTON, R.I. - A Cranston mother owed about 40,000 dollars in child support is suing the state Lottery Commission because prize money wasn't withheld when the father of her son cashed in.

Paula Duffy originally filed suit against Lincoln Park, claiming the gambling venue should have withheld money when Frank Bianco won several thousand dollars on more than one occasion.

Lincoln Park said it was never told to withhold such payments.

Duffy has since amended her lawsuit to name both Lincoln Park and the Lottery Commission as defendants.

The Providence Journal reports that the Lottery Commission, which licenses Lincoln Park, was served with legal papers yesterday.
