Nevada Judge Denies Mass Payout Of Late Unemployment Claims

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada's unemployment system continues to be plagued by computer glitches and phone-hotline delays, despite incremental progress to pay out claims erroneously delayed or denied.

In the class-action lawsuit filed by applicants who have yet to see their claims processed, a Nevada judge ruled Thursday to not require the state unemployment office pay out benefits en masse to laid-off workers.

The judge limited the scope of a July court order that required the state to pay out claims to gig and independent workers who had their wages cut.
