Former postal worker Rebecca Strong got her windfall from winning the lottery. Her ex-husband, John Pressley, is getting his from their divorce.

A DeKalb County jury found Friday that Strong, 43, a former postal worker must pay Pressley $1.7 million in alimony. Pressley v. Strong-Pressley, No. 98-cv-49964 (DeKalb Sup. verdict Feb. 18, 2000). The award amounts to slightly more than 11 percent of the $15 million Strong won on a Georgia Lotto ticket in 1994.
