    An Update on Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 29(a)(2).

    August 6, 2020
    It has been roughly a year-and-a-half since the amendment of Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 29(a)(2), which sets out when amicus briefs are permitted during merits briefing. Former Rule 29(a)(2) authorized amicus briefs only on leave of court or with the consent of all the parties. Amended Rule 29(a)(2), which went into effect December 1, 2018, authorizes amicus briefs on the same terms, except that the court may prohibit or strike an amicus brief “that would result in a judge’s disqualification.” Getting the consent of all the parties, then, no longer guarantees success.

    Work-Search Requirements to be Reinstated; Unemployment Fraud on the Rise

    July 7, 2020
    The Arkansas Division of Workforce Services (DWS) recently announced that starting June 28, the work-search requirement for unemployment benefits is once again in effect. DWS had waived the requirement in March in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the job-search requirement, individuals receiving unemployment benefits must make two to three job contacts each week depending on where in the state they live. The work-search requirement also applies to individuals receiving Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), except for those who are self-employed. Self-employed PUA claimants must be engaged in activities designed to resume their usual self-employment and should enter the number of days each week that they were engaged in activities designed to resume their usual self-employment. Individuals receiving Extended Benefits have enhanced work-search requirements and must make three to four job contacts each week depending on where in the state they live.
