Winner of Powerball jackpot asks court to remain anonymous

A New Hampshire woman who won the $559 million Powerball jackpot in January has filed a lawsuit against the state lottery commission.

According to court documents obtained by CNN, the lottery winner, identified only as "Jane Doe," claims public disclosure of her identity would constitute a potentially hazardous invasion of privacy.

In the court documents filed in New Hampshire superior court, the woman admits she made a "huge mistake" when she signed her name on the back of the winning ticket.

She said she followed instructions from the New Hampshire state lottery commission's website, and did so without the help of an attorney.

The funds have yet to be redeemed due to the lawsuit.
