No, California’s prompt payment laws for construction projects won’t apply to lottery winnings. If you’re having trouble collecting your winnings, obtaining the help of an attorney might be useful. But, keep in mind that everything’s taking longer due to the coronavirus pandemic – so delays should be expected in just about all walks of life.
