To those following this issue and potential class members in the pending case against DEO and Deloitte: Today, the court ruled that an injunction could not be passed ordering DEO to urgently fix the unemployment system in order to get everyone paid immediately. This is not the end of the lawsuit. It is only the beginning. This was a ruling on only one part of the case. We are working to move forward with the lawsuit as quickly as possible. Do not lose hope! We are still here fighting for you..
Unfortunately, Circuit Judge Angela Dempsey dismissed our Petition for a Writ of Mandamus. We filed this Petition on your behalf, and on behalf of all Floridians waiting for the funds and answers they so desperately need. We are not giving up! We are gearing up for more Motions, and we will continue to fight for you!

On Wednesday, May 6th at 1:30 pm, there will be a telephonic hearing before Judge Angela Dempsey on several matters. The first order of business will be addressing a Motion to Dismiss filed by the Governor and the Department of Economic Opportunity in their attempt to block the emergency petition for relief that we filed. The Court will hear that Motion first and then decide how it will manage the request for emergency relief we have requested. We will update this page tomorrow on the hearing results.
