A cool $50,000 -- split 45 ways
Winning $50,000 was the first step. Now, 45 Pierce County Highway Department employees are going to court to get separate checks for their shares.
The 45 have asked a judge to declare they each have an equal interest in the prize and each is entitled to an equal share. They are also asking the judge to direct the Lottery Division of the Wisconsin Department of Revenue to pay an equal share to each of them.
