ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The Maryland Court of Special Appeals has denied the State's appeal to stop the continuation of unemployment benefits following Saturday's ruling.

On Saturday morning, Governor Larry Hogan and Secretary of Labor Tiffany Robinson were ordered to rescind their notice to the United States Department of Labor to terminate federal unemployment benefits no later than 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, July 3.

Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Lawrence Fletcher-Hill granted the order because the plaintiffs proved that they will suffer immediate, substantial, and irreparable harm before a full adversary hearing can be held.

Shortly after this ruling, the State appealed this decision and that appeal was denied soon after.
