From what I saw, it was vague as to what she was doing. The fact
remains either a) she scanned it and either she screwed up(mixing up
which tickets she'd scanned) or the machine screwed up and the lottery
owes TWO winners the money ...or b) she's lying about scanning it
because had she done so, she would have found out she's a winner
because the lottery is claiming zero problems with their machine.

The store clerk is teaming up with the other woman now, even though
the other woman told her outright she wasn't going to share it if she
does indeed get her ill-gotten money. And exactly when is TRASH not
TRASH? (especially when dealing with these folks) It was a trash
can and the second woman legitimately took the ticket out and found it
to be a winner. You cannot "reclaim" trash once its deposited and you
The most likely scenario is that the first woman somehow screwed up
throwing her ticket away...so sad and all, but that should get her
ZERO special rights...the woman who fished through the trashed tickets
found it and should get to keep it.
Unless you've got some proof of some sort of conspiracy.
