Maryland unemployment lawsuit goes before Baltimore judge

Federal enhanced unemployment benefits will continue in Maryland at least through August, the state labor secretary said during testimony Monday at a court hearing. Gov. Larry Hogan's legal team called several witnesses at Monday's hearing, including state Labor Secretary Tiffany Robinson. She told the judge that federal benefits will continue at least through mid-August, but only because the federal government requires 30 days' notice to opt out. The judge declared he was surprised to hear that the benefits will be available through mid-August. The benefits expire on Sept. 6.
