INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - 24-Hour News 8 has learned a prize fight worth millions of dollars between seven Indianapolis hair stylists and a former colleague is headed back to court.
Scott Montross, the attorney for the seven stylists, confirmed there's been no settlement in a dispute over a winning lottery ticket and he is moving forward on behalf of his clients toward a trial.
The seven stylists were in court late last month asking a judge to freeze a $9.5 million Hoosier Lottery Jackpot.
The seven say an eighth person, Christina Shaw, purchased the tickets for the group that worked at Lou's Hair Salon on the east side of Indianapolis. But after hitting the jackpot, Shaw told her coworkers the winning ticket was one she bought for herself. She still has the winning ticket.
On March 1, a judge ruled that the jackpot could not be paid out by the Hoosier Lottery until further notice.
Montross said he filed a request for a pre-trial conference with the court. If that's granted, the lawyers for all the stylists will get together in front of the judge discussing a trial date.
Hoosiers saw unbearably cold temperatures Thursday morning.
Mintonye Elementary School may be ready to open in August, but Southwestern Middle School won't be ready. That's the preliminary assessment Superintendent Scott Hanback told the Tippecanoe School Corporation school board Wednesday evening.
