Lakeland, Florida - Abraham Shakespeare won the Florida Lotto in November, but the case against him isn't that simple.
Shakespeare concedes his two Lotto tickets were purchased by co-worker Michael Ford at a Frostproof convenience store while the two were on their tuck delivery route. Shakespeare claims he paid Ford $2 for the tickets, and once he won Ford came demanding a $1 million dollar cut.
Ford is suing Shakespeare, claiming Shakespeare removed the winning ticket from Ford's wallet.
Shakespeare's lawyers are filing a countersuit, claiming Ford slandered Shakespeare by calling him a fraud and a thief.
