Hartford, Connecticut is the town.
The dispute is over half a million dollars won at Powerball.
Pat Eaton-Robb of the Associated Press writes that "A passion for gambling shared by two once-inseparable octogenarian sisters has ended up dividing them, with the Connecticut Supreme Court ruling that one can sue the other for a share of a winning $500,000 lottery ticket."
In brief, 83 year old Theresa Sokaitis and 87 year old Rose Bakaysa were as close as two peas in a pod and gambled like motherf'rs. Lotto, slots, jai lai, if it moved they bet on it. They decided that if one won they both would share in the spoils. Then they had a falling out.
A short time after the falling out Mrs. Sokaitis found out that Mrs. Bakaysa had won that huge chunk of change and had split it not with her as agreed upon but with their brother Joesph F. Troy Sr.
