There was only one decision from the Minnesota Court of Appeals, but the case is somewhat unique because the issue is whether the applicant was actively seeking suitable employment and the Appeals Court affirmed but modified -- at DEED's urging -- the decision of the ULJ.  I think the case should have been remanded -- or sent back -- for further proceedings.  That would have had the same result, but affirming as modified may have been more efficient.

A14-1974 Tanya Jacobs, Relator, vs. Department of Employment and Economic Development, Respondent.

Relator challenges the determination of an unemployment-law judge (ULJ) that she is ineligible to receive unemployment benefits for the period of April 27 through June because she was not actively seeking employment. Respondent department argues that the ULJ’s determination should be modified to reflect relator’s employment efforts in the first week of June. We affirm as modified.
