Hair stylists fight over $9.5 million lottery ticket

INDIANAPOLIS – A group of Indianapolis hair stylists are trying to claim part of a $9.5 million lottery ticket they believe a co-worker purchased as part of an office lottery pool.

The seven co-workers at an Indianapolis salon are seeking a restraining order to freeze the money during the battle over the winning Hoosier Lotto ticket.

Attorney Scott Montross, told WTHR-TV ( that his clients want “to slow down the train until we can figure things out.”

The stylists said they want to split to prize from last Saturday’s drawing with a co-worker who bought tickets for an office pool as well as some for herself.

A Marion County judge will have to decide if that woman can prove she bought her winning ticket separately from the ones she purchased for the office pool.
