Staff working the front counters at the Colorado Lottery’s Denver offices didn’t have a chance to leave their posts for lunch Thursday as a record-high jackpot drove a frantic pace of ticket sales. “Things are reaching a fever pitch,” Colorado Lottery spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said. The estimated jackpot for the multi-state Mega Millions game increased from $900 million to $970 million on Thursday, and Churchill said she wouldn’t be surprised if it reached $1 billion before the next drawing at 9 p.m. Friday. That amount won’t fit on the lottery’s signs designed to display mere hundreds of millions in prize money, she said. The odds of winning the pot — a cash value of more than $548 million after taxes — are one in 302,575,350, according to the Colorado Lottery. But that hasn’t kept more and more people from buying tickets. Between 3:22 p.m. and 4:22 p.m. Wednesday, the Colorado Lottery sold $3,092 worth of tickets a … [Read more...] about Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is approaching a cool $1 billion.

Sections Skip to content Skip to site index Feature In representing the porn star Stormy Daniels, the lawyer thinks he can bring down a president — one cable-news hit at a time. Credit Benjamin Lowy for The New York Times Supported by ByMatthew Shaer July 10, 2018 The attorney Michael Avenatti stands just under six feet tall, with blatant blue eyes and thinning hair he shaves down to stubble, exposing the crumpled vein at his left temple. Before February, when he agreed to represent Stephanie Clifford — the pornographic film performer better known as Stormy Daniels — in her legal battle with the president of the United States, Avenatti was in the best shape of his life: 185 pounds, 9 percent body fat. The ever-expanding pressures of the case have meant less time at the gym, and in recent months he has lost some muscle weight. But his cheeks and chin remain Cubist in their geometry, and in motion, head lowered and shoulders … [Read more...] about The Fast and Furious Michael Avenatti
DURHAM, N.C. —On a chilly Wednesday morning in December, Jesse McCoy II headed upstairs to a third-floor courtroom full of cherrywood pews. The 34-year-old housing attorney had never before met his potential client and knew hardly any of the details of a case he might argue in less than 15 minutes. He looked down at the name on his manila folder—Leona Roberts—and called it out in open court. Roberts, a 42-year-old mother with a wide smile, was facing eviction from her $650-per-month yellow ranch in East Durham. The one-time nursing assistant always paid her rent, though sometimes it came with an extra $32 late fee. But a massive water and sewer bill of more than $700 in September forced her to choose between that and the rent. She chose the water bill, frustrated the landlord had ignored her complaints about leaking pipes. In late November, after Roberts complained to city inspectors about the pipes, the landlord filed to evict her.McCoy knew an eviction had the … [Read more...] about Fighting an eviction crisis: How a young black lawyer is changing his city
Retired carpenter and Juneau lawyer launch lawsuit to stop payment of oil and gas tax credits The odds are not in their favor. The State of Alaska is against them. So is Gov. Bill Walker. The Alaska Legislature doesn’t side with them, and neither does the state’s oil and gas industry. Nevertheless, Eric Forrer and Joe Geldhof have launched a lonely attempt to defeat a plan that calls for Alaska to borrow up to $1 billion to pay a debt owed to oil and gas drillers. Geldhof, Forrer’s attorney, filed a lawsuit last Monday. “I am trying to send a message,” Forrer said in a Tuesday morning interview. “We’re awake. You’re not going to skate on this one.” Forrer, who came to Alaska in 1962 as a teenager, said the lawsuit comes from “a sense of outrage, which has been slowly building since the pipeline days. With historic perspective, the state of Alaska got rolled by the oil industry.” House Bill 331, proposed by the … [Read more...] about ‘You have to fight these things:’ Why two Juneau men are standing in the way of the Alaska Legislature, Gov.
