A Chatham man who is locked in a legal battle for half of a $6-million lottery prize is reported to have launched a lawsuit against the provincial lottery regulator.
Maurice Thibeault is seeking a total $825,000 in damages from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
In a claim filed in Windsor, Thibeault alleges the commission didn’t collect or analyze potential evidence in an investigation.
Thibeault received half of the sum in January after his former live-in partner filed a separate statement of claim over the lotto 6/49 prize.
A lawyer for Denise Robertson claims Thibeault broke up with her – then within a week tried to claim the total $6.1-million prize.
Robertson claims they always bought tickets together and shared the winnings for the two years they were together.
The court is determining the rightful owner.
