A Baltimore City Circuit Court judge is expected to rule Saturday morning whether to issue a temporary restraining order requiring Maryland to continue administering expanded federal unemployment benefits.

The judge’s ruling is expected the same day those benefits are due to expire at midnight, following a decision by Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) to suspend Maryland’s participation in the program.

“Hogan’s decision will leave too many Marylanders in the lurch. Our next Governor needs to clean up the mess at the unemployment division: between the endless glitches and technical problems, cutting off pandemic benefits early, and other mismanagement, Hogan is failing to support Marylanders who are trying to get back on their feet.” — Jon Baron
