Lotto reasons to escape
THE broke factory worker who lost a legal fight against his work colleagues for a slice of a $ 40 million lotto win has moved to the US after being left with an eye- watering $ 1 million court bill.
Father- of- five Brendan King quit Australia two weeks ago after accepting a two- year transfer to South Carolina from electricity factory Prysmian Group’s Cromer plant in Sydney’s north.
He is facing a hefty bill of close to $ 1 million after being ordered to pay the legal costs of the 14 colleagues he worked with in Liverpool after he sued them when they each won $ 2.8 million in the Powerball in May last year. The factory supervisor alleged the group — led by Robert Adams — froze him out of the syndicate.
