Durham attorney wins preliminary injunction in dispute with NC unemployment agency

A Wake County Superior Court  judge has  granted a preliminary injunction that  requires the North Carolina Division of Employment Security (DES)  to continue making hearing notices about contested unemployment claims available as it has done for the past decade.

The case pitted Durham attorney Monica Wilson against Dale Folwell, head of the state Division of Employment Security. Last month, Folwell abruptly advised attorneys that after February 28 they would no longer be able to pick up the hearing notices on a daily basis. Instead, notices would be mailed out three times a month at a cost of $600 per month, which was twice the amount the agency previously charged.

Judge Paul Ridgeway ruled Thursday:
