HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A trial is scheduled next year in the case of a convenience store employee who was sued by a regular customer who said they had a verbal agreement to split any prizes they won on three Montana Millionaire tickets sold on Dec. 23.

Jeff Fallang of East Helena claimed the $1 million prize on Jan. 2

A week later, Michael Hess sued and sought an order to prevent Fallang from spending half the winnings.

The Independent Record reports (https://bit.ly/1DTu3j4 ) District Judge Kathy Seeley granted the restraining order Monday and scheduled an April 2015 trial.

The lawsuit includes an affidavit from a Town Pump employee who said Hess bought two tickets and Fallang gave Hess $20 to buy another one because he couldn’t buy one while he was on shift. The employee said the men agreed to split any winnings.
