The woman, who court documents fittingly only refer to as "Jane Doe", signed the back of her winning lottery ticket with her name as New Hampshire Lottery Commission Rules state.

However, the New Hampshire Lottery Commission said that there are rules in place that state winners must be announced publicly.
She then contacted a lawyer and learned that she could have shielded her identity by instead writing the name of a trust.
Gordon calls her "a connected with group part" who "wishes to proceed with this work and [keep] the flexibility to stroll into a market or go to open occasions without being referred to or focused as the victor of a half-billion dollars".
The court document, which identifies the woman only as Jane Doe, states that she values her privacy and wanted to support charitable causes without having her identity thrown into the limelight.
Her lawyers argue her privacy interest outweighs the insignificant public interest in disclosing her name.

The lawsuit, however, says Jane Doe now joins a small demographic of big jackpot winners that "has historically been victimized by the unscrupulous". Any adjustment to the ticket purchased at Reed's Ferry Market in Merrimack would invalidate it, the lottery commission claims. His family members said the public announcement of the lottery winnings had made him a target.
