Confidential settlement reached in lawsuit over who owns $1 million lottery ticket in Arkansas

A defense attorney says a settlement has been reached in a lawsuit over who owns a winning $1 million scratch-off ticket that an Arkansas woman pulled from the trash.

Jury selection was to begin Friday in White County over who should keep the winnings from the "Diamond Dazzler" ticket that Sharon Duncan bought. Duncan says she threw away the ticket at a convenience store after a scanner said it wasn't a winner.

Sharon Jones pulled the ticket from the trash and claimed the jackpot.

Jones' attorney Jimmy Simpson says a settlement was reached Friday. Simpson tells The Daily Citizen (http://is.gd/MT8XgB ) the terms of the settlement are confidential and sealed but that Jones is pleased with the outcome.

An attorney representing Duncan and other plaintiffs in the suit declined to comment.
