Amethyst Payne Vs State Of Nevada

Reno District Court Judge Barry Breslow held the State of Nevada in contempt of court for failing to follow the court’s July 22, 2020 order to continue paying unemployment benefits to about 9,000 people who had begun receiving benefits, but whom DETR discontinued paying without notice. In addition to a $1,000 fine to be paid to the court, DETR was ordered to pay within three weeks an estimated $90-120 million to the claimants. The due date for DETR to pay the 9,000 claimants is the day before Christmas. Sanctions could follow if the claimants covered by the ruling aren't paid by the Dec. 24 deadline.
