BALTIMORE (AP) — A judge has dismissed a class-action lawsuit seeking unemployment benefits for Marylanders whose claims are on hold, finding that they can’t bypass the claims and appeal process through the courts.

News outlets reported that the Unemployed Workers’ Union’s suit contends that falsely flagged applicants are being denied benefits. The plaintiffs asked Judge John Nugent to find that the state “failed to establish and execute policies required by statute to ensure timely processing of claims.” But in a ruling Tuesday, Nugent said that the General Assembly detailed procedures for applicants to seek reviews, but there’s no evidence that it wanted to provide “private remedies to unemployed workers.”

The coalition vowed to continue its fight.
