WEST VIRGINIA: Supreme Court orders powerball lottery winner Jack Whittaker to comply with 2008 divorce settlement agreement

Jack and Jewell Whitaker divorced in 2008 and since then, they’ve been mired in financial disputes surrounding their divorce settlement. Jack Whitaker apparently won a sizable Powerball Lottery in 2002 and he took home, after taxes, over $100 million dollars. He also had an LLC in which he was the sole member/shareholder and it is the LLC that was the subject of the post-settlement dispute, it seems. The ex wife fought him all the way to the state supreme court which recently ruled that Jack Whitaker was in breach of their divorce “contract” and so he has to pay her the outstanding amounts owed. She claims he’s paid 90% of what he agreed to and so he basically must cough up the additional 10%. Read more here in the West Virginia Gazette: http://www.wvgazette.com/News/201103011183
