BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland’s highest court has upheld a lower court’s emergency order keeping the state enrolled in enhanced federal unemployment programs.

News outlets report that Maryland Court of Appeals Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera on Monday dismissed Gov. Larry Hogan’s attempt to block the temporary restraining order a Baltimore judge issued Saturday. Unemployed residents will continue to receive federal unemployment benefits, including supplemental $300 weekly payments, through at least July 13. Hogan’s administration had planned to cut off the benefits over the weekend, ahead of their expiration in September.

The parties will return to Baltimore Circuit Court on Friday for a hearing on the matter.
