There is only one unpublished opinion on unemployment benefits from the Minnesota Court of Appeals this week  The relator is pro se, meaning that he is representing himself.  Although you always have the right to represent yourself in Minnesota, representing yourself is seldom a good idea, especially when you are appealing a case to the Minnesota Court of Appeals.  In this case, the decision was affirmed. 

A13-1943  John Matheson, Hilltop, Minnesota (pro se relator), Progressive Action - Minnesota, Respondent, Department of Employment and Economic Development, Respondent.

Summary: In this certiorari appeal, pro se relator appeals the unemployment-law judge’s decision that he is ineligible to receive employment benefits because he quit his job without a good reason caused by his employer.  In particular, relator argued that he had a good reason to quit caused by his employer because of an interpersonal conflict and difficulties communicating with his supervisor. We affirm.
