I saw this on Forbes – Why Workers Are Suing States For Cutting Off Expanded Unemployment Benefits: https://www.forbes.com/advisor/personal-finance/pandemic-unemployment-benefits-state-lawsuits/. Longer article.
This summer, 26 states are cutting off access to pandemic unemployment benefits that were extended by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
But some people may get their benefits back, even if just for a few weeks.
Several lawsuits claim that states have a duty to provide federal aid to their residents. So far, suits have been filed in Indiana, Maryland, Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas, and benefits have been temporarily reinstated in Indiana and Maryland.
