DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Workers at a Quaker Oats plant sharing a record lottery jackpot in Iowa are demanding anonymity following a day of public celebration.
The 20 workers say they'll go to court to get an injunction ensuring their last names aren't released. It's believed to be the first time an Iowa lottery winner has chosen to take legal action to keep a name confidential.
The announcement follows a day of celebration for the group that calls itself the Shipping 20.
They boarded a chartered bus Wednesday to Iowa headquarters in Des Moines. They sported bright red T-shirts. Then they were showered by confetti as they smiled for television cameras at a news conference.
The $241 million Powerball jackpot amounts to a lump-sum payment of about $5.6 million per winner after taxes.
