MEMORANDUM OF DECISION RE MOTION FOR JUDGMENT
The court has reviewed the record certified to it by the Board of Review, the defendant's motion for judgment, the plaintiff's pleadings, and has considered all of his submissions and arguments. The plaintiff did not appear at oral argument.
The court has no authority to find facts in an unemployment compensation appeal hearing. It is limited to reviewing the records certified to it by the Board of Review. Credibility of witnesses is evaluated at the administrative level and not in this court hearing.
The Board of Review determined that the claimant, Phil Eckstein was ineligible to receive benefits because he did not file his continued claims for unemployment benefits in accordance with the law.
The decision of the Board of Review follows reasonably from the facts found and correctly applies the law to those facts. The decision is not arbitrary, capricious or contrary to law. The decision is affirmed and the motion for judgment pleading #101.00 dated November 16, 2010 is granted.
The appeal is dismissed.
