However, the commission argued that it was required to disclose her name and hometown as the information was already written on the ticket.
However, Temple noted that nothing in his order could be interpreted to prevent the lottery commission or its employees from "processing, maintaining, or accessing Ms. Doe's ticket in the normal course of business".
The judge ruled the New Hampshire Lottery Commission can not release the woman's name or address.
The Lottery's executive director Charlie McIntyre said: "While we were expecting a different outcome and believed the State had a strong argument, we respect the court's decision". The state Attorney General's Office said the woman's name must be revealed because she signed the back of the ticket, USA Today reported.
As part of their bid to keep her name out of the news, Doe's attorneys created a trust to shield her identity and asked the commission not to identify her. In addition to deluge of requests being fielded by Doe's attorneys at the firm Shaheen & Gordon, the market in Merrimack where Doe bought the ticket has been inundated as well.
The highly anticipated ruling capped a legal saga that began January 29, when Doe sued the Lottery Commission for the right to remain nameless when she claimed her windfall. The Commission is enjoined from ever releasing her name or address permanently.
"She was jumping up and down", Shaheen said. "She will be able to live her life normally".
Doe accepted the massive prize through her attorneys last week and made several donations to charity - including $150,000 to Girls Inc. and $33,000 each to three New Hampshire chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger. Last week, the trust made donations totaling almost $250,000 to Girls Inc. and three chapters of End 68 Hours of Hunger.

However, Jane Doe's hometown, Merrimack, N.H., was disclosed.
The Lottery Commission argued that the name and hometown must be disclosed under the right-to-know law because the public "has an interest in ensuring the games played are on the level and that the winners are bonafide lottery participants", Temple wrote.
He did rule, however, that the woman's hometown can be publicly released, as it was "highly unlikely" that the woman could be identified as the victor exclusively based on her hometown.
"Although the Commission dismissed this harassment as trivial and or speculative, for the court to do so would require it to ignore the significant media attention this case has received, the numerous documents of bad experiences of other lottery winners, as well as the bevy of unsolicited emails, phone calls and in-person visits already directed at Ms. Doe through her attorneys", he wrote.
