Cameron Hartman 9/29/09 Seat # 59 PEARSALL v. ALEXANDER Facts: Two friends, Harold Pearsall and Joe Alexander, were friends for 25 years, and often bought lottery tickets together.

On the evening of December 16, 1982, the twosome bought two lottery tickets on two separate occasions; the first pair of lottery tickets were worthless, and one ticket in the second pair won $20,000.

It is also notable to say that after the first pair of tickets were purchased by Pearsall and Alexander snatched them from Pearsall and scratched them off himself.
