The defendant walked away with the check and the money," Ortiz's attorney, Milt Theologou, told NBCWashington.com. "All my client got was a T-shirt and a hat."

But the co-worker’s attorney insists his client did not take anyone’s money.

“There was a confidential agreement between the two,” defense attorney Isaac Klein said. “He is making certain allegations that we are emphatically and categorically denying, and we will try our case in court.”

"No, I didn’t have an agreement with her,” Ortiz said. “I called her and I asked, 'Can you do me a favor?' She said, 'Ok.' I said, 'Since I know I can’t speak English, I don’t have my papers, I don’t have anything, that’s why I ask.' She said, 'That’s fine.'”

Ortiz said his co-worker was supposed to turn over the full jackpot to him after she claimed the prize. The co-worker, on the other hand, insists the terms of the agreement were different but wouldn't disclose the specifics of their arrangement. She filed a motion to dismiss the case and a judge denied that request.

The moral of this story? There is no honor amongst thieves.

Maybe now Ortiz will learn English.

Illegals are screwing the taxpayer every day by fraudulent means, and now one gets screwed and he doesn't like it? If he doesn't have an SS number safe to assume he doesn't pay taxes out of his paycheck.

I wonder if his co-worker sent the money back to her country?

The government should simply sieze all the money. THey do so with the profits from other criminal activities, why not here? Oh, and prosecute the criminal while they are at it.

And all along I thought entering the US illegally was their big lottery payoff. Boy was I wrong.

The guy has no SSN, says he is working as a roofer in MD, and he doesn't want to get his employer in trouble for hiring an illegal so he's not outing his coworker publically...

...except the dummy went and filed a lawsuit.

Deport the illegal and fine his employer.

And if I won $450k I'd get the heck out of PeeGee county.

I am in total agreement. Unfortunately, with the election so close, they don't want to offend potential voters.
