    Young urban youth no longer dream of making it big in pro sports but practice resisting arrest techniques in the playground to one day hit it big in the ghetto lottery.

    Not my area of specialty, but I believe it depends. The Internal Revenue Code subdivides this area into various components and asks what the money is intended to replace. Add in the fact that this is the result of a "settlement," and it gets even more convoluted. For example, the portion of the settlement that is based in physical injury would be excludable, but the portion that is, say, based in assertion of say, lost opportunity costs or punitives often requires a look at the underlying state cause of action to determine whether federal taxes would apply.

    But with $5 million, I'm sure they can find a CPA and attorney to help them untangle the mess.
