There’s been a settlement in the Margaree Chase the Ace case.
Barb Reddick filed a lawsuit against her nephew in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Port Hawkesbury in July looking to retrieve half of the winnings.
In court in August it was revealed that Reddick sent funds to her nephew Tyrone MacInnis to play the lottery – a ticket with both their names won the $1.2 million jackpot on July 11.
A settlement Conference took place today in Port Hawkesbury whereby Reddick agreed to give MacInnis $350 000
The judge had previously ordered that the funds in the MacInnis bank account remain frozen.
Reddick has said she only put his name on the ticket for good luck, and she wanted all of the jackpot.
A release says, ‘both (are) satisfied with the terms of the settlement’
