Sen. Ananich on UIA lawsuit moving forward

LANSING, Mich. – Today, Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) issued the following statement after the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled to allowBauserman v. Unemployment Insurance Agency – the lawsuit to obtain damages for those who were wrongly convicted of fraud by the state’s Unemployment Insurance Agency – to move forward with proceedings:

“These wrongful accusations of fraud have ruined people’s lives. Since 2013, countless victims have reached out to my office with stories of going into debt, having to declare bankruptcy, and losing their homes. We have been working for years to address the fallout of this mismanaged and disastrous program of the previous administration. What Gov. Snyder’s agency did to these families is downright criminal, and the plaintiffs deserve their day in court.”
