Barb Reddick has taken the first legal step in the Margaree Chase the Ace dispute.
Adam Rodgers with Boudrot-Rodgers says he filed a lawsuit on behalf of Reddick in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Port Hawkesbury Thursday.
Rodgers tells The Hawk he also filed a motion for preservation order to prevent the prize money awarded to Tyrone MacInnis from being spent or transferred; that motion will be heard Aug. 10.
He says MacInnis was served with the lawsuit Thursday night.
Two names were on the $1.2 million winning ticket July 11- Reddick’s and MacInnis’, her nephew.
She has said she only put his name on the ticket for good luck, and she wants all of the jackpot.
