British “Millionare” winner says he’ll sue

With Britain’s ITV still refusing to broadcast an episode of Who Wants to
Be a Millionaire
in which Major Charles Ingram won the top prize, Ingram
has decided to sue the program for his winnings, plus legal costs and
interest. Authorities are investigating claims that Ingram received the
winning answer by a confederate sitting in the audience who coughed four
times while Ingram was considering his final answer.

In a statement on
Tuesday, Ingram’s lawyers said: “Mr. Ingram has reluctantly taken this
important legal step, but feels his hand has been forced by the non
disclosure of the allegations against him. Mr. Ingram hopes he will be
vindicated by the successful conclusion of this claim.”
