INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Court of Appeals says a department store wasn't justified in firing a worker who took two leftover hot dogs from a company picnic, so it must pay him unemployment benefits.

The court ruled Thursday in the case of Nolan Koewler, who was fired from a Dillard's store in Evansville a year ago.
