Ten Florida residents have sued Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis for ending the $300 supplemental unemployment benefits more than two months early.

The plaintiffs demanded that DeSantis reinstate the benefits, which he stopped in June, and send retroactive payments for the benefits they missed. Without the benefits, they couldn’t afford housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and childcare, they said.

The lawsuit, filed Sunday in Broward County, Florida, also named the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) and its director Dane Eagle as defendants. They filed the lawsuit “on behalf of themselves and all unemployed Floridians.”
