Lottery loser sues for distress
« on: June 25, 2007, 06:01:28 PM »

 Dutch woman has lost her compensation claim for mental distress she suffered from missing out when her neighbours won a lottery windfall.

Prize winners are chosen by postal code and Helene de Gier would have shared in the $22.2 million if she had bought a $13.50 ticket, as her seven neighbours in the town of Heusden did.

Ms de Grier had accused the organisers of "emotional blackmail" and demanded compensation, but court documents showed she had lost.

The judgement said lottery organisers could not be held responsible for those who fail to take part and later regret it.

Aren't Holland and Sweden really pretty much the same country anyway?  Don't Know
