Ex-girlfriend of New Jersey Powerball winner drops lawsuit that sought share of the winnings

A New Jersey woman has decided not to bet on getting a piece of her former boyfriend's $338 million Powerball win.

Inez Sanchez agreed to drop her lawsuit Friday in state Superior Court in Paterson. The Record (http://bit.ly/1gfilhp) reports that in exchange, Powerball winner Pedro Quezada has agreed not to try and recover attorneys' fees from her.

Sanchez's lawyers argued last year that she was entitled to some of the estimated $152 million Quezada will receive after taxes because he purchased the winning lottery ticket based on the couple's shared earnings.

The lawyers said Sanchez and Quezada had lived together for 10 years, had a child and shared ownership of a grocery store, although they never married.
