In California, if my lower level unemployment appeal is denied, when can I reapply for benefits if the reasons I was denied are no longer valid?

I was denied benefits because I checked the box did not seek work under CA guidelines because I had just had twins. I was supposed to be on Family Leave but instead was laid off. I have appealed the decision and met with the Judge and it didn't go well so I'm wandering if my appeal is denied how long do I have to wait before I can file again since now I have been actively looking for work.
Tell me what the issue on your hearing notice was and why it didn't go well.
Just from what you've told me it sounds like it would have only been an able and available issue.
A&A issues which stop payment of benefits are the kind of disqualification that must be served.
They are lifted when you become able and available.
So as far as I can tell as long as everything else was okay and you are now looking for work and available for work .. there should be no reason why you couldn't begin collecting benefits.
