(AP) - Only hours remain before a $63 million California Lottery prize slips through somebody's fingers.
The winning SuperLotto Plus ticket must be delivered to a lottery office by 5 p.m. Thursday or the money will be forfeited to the state's schools.
The ticket was sold on Aug. 8 at a 7-Eleven store on Lassen Street in the Chatsworth neighborhood of Los Angeles. The winning numbers are: 46-1-33-30-16 and the Mega number: 24.
Lottery officials say nobody has claimed the prize, but at least one man disagrees.
A lawsuit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles says Brandy Milliner turned in the ticket, but it was rejected by lottery officials who said it was too damaged. He wants a judge to declare him the winner.
Lottery officials say they are looking into the claim.
