The Miami Herald reports on story of a a secret that surely could not be kept for long, but the husband,Arnim Ramdass, allegedly tried.
According to the stay-at-home wife, Donna Campbell, Mr. Ramdass, an airline mechanic, 52, reportedly disconnected the phone line at home and Ms. Campbell, 48, to watch television. Eventually, however, she learned the truth: Ramdass, along with 16 other mechanics at Miami International Airport, had won a $19 million lottery jackpot. Split among the 17 workers, it amounted to a $600,000 lump-sum payday, before taxes, for each of them, reports the Miami Herald (story reprinted below)
In her suit, Campbell claimed Ramdass fraudulently conspired to conceal the lottery payout from her, and contended she is entitled to a 50 percent share of her husband's take from the winning ticket, because it was purchased with marital assets.
Once the lawsuit is resolved, the newspaper says, she plans to divorce him.
