Judge Blocks Hogan’s Decision on Extended Benefits

July 13th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Lawrence Fletcher-Hill has extended an injunction against Maryland Governor Larry Hogan's attempt to end extended federal unemployment benefits.  


Governor Hogan had wanted to end the additional money in order to encourage the receipients to reenter the labor force.


Those bringing the suit claimed it would cause additional harm to those who are having hardship in recovering from the pandemic.
