Former live-in girlfriend of Passaic’s $338M Powerball winner to receive nothing
The former live-in girlfriend of a Passaic bodega owner who struck the Powerball jackpot and cashed in on $338 million won’t be getting her cut of the winnings, according to a Record report.
The newspaper says Inez Sanchez has settled with Pedro Quezada, the father of one of her children, agreeing to drop her lawsuit. She will also lose the legal right to pursue the claim further, according to the report. Quezada––who took a $211 million lump sum payout that dropped to $152 million after taxes––agreed not to recoup attorney fees he spent defending the case, according to the report.
Sanchez had argued that the former couple played the lottery together and she was entitled to a cut of the winnings. Quezada, in legal filings, said they were not married so Sanchez is owed nothing.
The former bodega owner from the Dominican Republic has been accused of stiffing his landlord on rent payments and reneging on his promise to share lotto winnings with neighbors.
