Edward Hairston, a logistics agent at the KraftMaid company, says that every month for the last five years he entered $5 into a lottery pool with his co-workers.
Unfortunately for him, while Hairston was recovering from a back injury and unable to make his payments, the group won the Aug. 5 Mega Millions drawing.
When Hairston tried to collect his winnings, he found the other members had kicked him out.
Hairston’s lawyer tells The Plain Dealer newspaper that the group had an unwritten policy to cover for colleagues who were unable to pay due to illness or vacation.
