Navy wife sues to get UE benefits after quitting job to follow husband

The Norfolk paper reports here ("Navy wife challenges employment commission," 5/9/04) and the AP reports here that the wife of a Navy man has filed suit in state court in Chesapeake challenging the denial of unemployment benefits after she gave up her job in Virginia when her husband was transferred to Hawaii. The article notes that "Virginia is one of several states that block military spouses from collecting unemployment benefits if they leave their job because of a military relocation."
