Seven workers at a California medical lab who shared a 315 (m) million-dollar lottery jackpot are being sued by a co-worker.
Jonathan De La Cruz says he wants a share of the pot.
In his lawsuit, he claims he had always been a part of the group when they bought lottery tickets before, but that he was off work the day they bought the winning ticket.
He says the group had an oral agreement that everyone would be included when they pooled their money to buy tickets.
The winners say that's nonsense. They say this is the first time they had ever bought tickets together. And they say it had been nearly a year since any of them had chipped-in with De La Cruz for tickets.
They also say that when they won, he didn't claim that he deserved a cut.
The winners will each receive about 25 (m) million dollars, before taxes.
