I am an attorney. I see lots of comments on here about the law that are completely wrong. If you want to see what kind of Judge you have, look at the percentages of awards provided on this site. Do not look at the comments for an understanding of the law. It seems many of the commenters are very misinformed about the hearing process. All and all, I highly recommend using an attorney at your hearing so someone who understands disability law can help you understand the procedure.

I think he is a strong judge and just wants to hear your case clearly to help him make a decision but my lawyer said I definitely have a case he just said it might be hard because of my age but I didn't pick my age to become disabled its runs in my family and I have more than enough work credits I just hope he makes a decision over my medical records rather than my age!!

How can a reasoned medical opinion of a medical examiner who never examined a patient , never saw or spoke to a patient ,never reviewed a patients complete medical records stand behind his report as being fair and legitimate . How can an administrative law judge use a report like this to deny a disabled person the disability benefits that they deserve ? The judge did so because it was the best way to deny benefits and it fit easily into his biased decision . I have lost all faith in our American judicial system because of how unfairly I was treatedi . On the day I had my hearing judge Pease had an armed security guard protecting him and as I was preparing to go into my hearing the security guard stepped outside to get some fresh air for a minute and when judge Pease noticed his security guard was not there judge Pease panicked got scared and immediately yelled for his security guard . Judge Pease verbally reprimanded his guard for stepping outside for a minute . I am five feet four inches tall I weigh 110 pounds I am thin weak from my disability and was on crutches as I am unable to walk but this judge is such a coward I guess I freightened him . I think it's this judges blatent bad decision s that make him think someone will hurt him . The thought never crossed my mind to physically hurt him or anyone else I have ever come in contact with. It saddens me that I have lost all faith in our judicial system because of the way I was unfairly treated . Everyone I come in contact with I will tell them how I was treated .

I had my Disability Hearing in Moreno Valley with Joseph D. Schloss as the Judge. To start, I always thought that judges were to be fair and honest. I guess that does not apply to Joseph D. Schloss. I received my Notice of Decision. The decision did not bother me as much as the fabrication of statements I did not make and the twisting of the statements I did make. This is unfair and NOT honest. Where are the laws to stop judges from perjury?

Judge Fortune wrote in his decision that I did not display the symptoms of PTSD in the courtroom. I thought it was the judge's job to examine the facts and put together the puzzle from what the doctors diagnosed, not to diagnose conditions themselves, after all they are not doctors so they do not have the training to diagnose medical conditions. I was discharged from the military for PTSD and am currently rated 100% disabled by the Veteran's Administration for PTSD, based on their doctors who specialize in PTSD, but I guess judge fortune (I did not capitalize intentionally) knows more about PTSD than the dozen or so doctors I have seen and am still seeing from the military and VA. Also, he was very disrespectful and utterly rude. Two things that have no place from a judge. Maybe his parents never taught him to treat people properly. I have never said someone should be fired but judge lowell fortune has no business as a judge!!!

The date is now January 12 ,2014 and I still continue to live with a poor decision made by administrative law judge Jesse J. Pease regarding my claim for disability benefits . I hope Judge Pease reads my comments and I am sure they mean nothing to him but I have to live with his bad incorrect decision every day of my life. Unable to work and denied my SSDI benefits my daily life has been a struggle . I want judge Pease to understand the impact of his unfair treatment that I received that day . With only an income of $627 from SSI I have lost everything I worked so hard for and I currently am packing up my home as I lost my home to foreclosure and face eviction in 3 days . Had I been approved for my SSDI benefits I would still be able to make my monthly mortgage payment and would not be facing eviction . Judge Pease I will be evicted and will be homeless and I attributed this to your bad decision . I would have much rather been told by you judge Pease that the system has no money left and that's why I would not be receiving disability benefits rather than having a fabricated medical examiners report used against me .

What a horrible feeling, not having any money, no where to go, not being able to get hired anywhere, and even if I was that lucky not being able to keep employment because of my disability. After being denied by Marti Kirby I am at a complete loss on how to even exist. My stomach hurts so bad, and i am so wrecked with fear that I can hardly keep food down. I really hoped and prayed Marti Kirby would've given me a hand up instead of a foot down.

“If you are looking for compassion and common sense try finding another judge. “ After my denial by the SSDI system and another ALJ, I no longer have any faith or pride in the United States. This country is a pitiful disgrace to the world. The rich and able bodied can continue to get richer while the disabled can die and go away, in their eyes the sooner the better. Wonder how many bonuses were handed out for meeting the “disposition” quota's? They might as well fire all adjudicators and judges and just let random computer picks make the decision, it would probably be equally accurate.

If you are about to present your case to Marti Kirby, I have two words for you: Be Scared. I say this because she does not seem to care about facts. I personally have not worked in two decades, have no real education, have been homeless for over a year and suffer from a condition even Marti told me she believes exists. The job rehabilitation person was present during my hearing and it was decided I was unable to work in any meaningful capacity. I have been told that there are some judges who act as pen pushers for the social security administration and are blind to any evidence, this is in my opinion what Marti Kirby is. Kind of like how a patrol cop needs to reach a speeding ticket quota, Marti needs to deny even valid claims. Her denial of my case could be the final nail in the coffin for me, it was bar none one of the saddest days of my life and will negatively impact the lives of my loved ones who are equally baffled by the denial. If you are looking for compassion and common sense try finding another judge. If you are the social security administration and need a judge to find any tiny reason to deny a hurting person Marti Kirby will fit the bill.

I haven't received my decision regarding my SSDI hearing yet, but I do want to say that Judge Duane Young is a pretty fair judge. I didn't see this page until after my hearing when I was told the judges have their approval ratings online, so I wanted to present a fair view of him now and how I feel regardless of how he rules. He's good when it comes to your records and will allow you to explain what's in your records. I was honest with him about my records and my physical limitations and he was respectful. He did ask me a couple of tricky yes or no questions that were hard to answer in my situation but he understood what I was talking about. I've heard about other judges and how they do things, but Judge Duane Young actually seems to be one of the more respectful judges. Plus there are a lot of people out there who hope for a judge that gives them a fair shake and they don't always get that, especially from the sound of some of the newspaper articles around the country talking about how the judges don't hear them out or pay attention to the medical evidence. My final 2 cents is that as long as you're honest with him and you try to answer his questions the best you can, he's fair and you'll feel comfortable.

Not enough room here to state all of Radensky's blatant lies! Never even reviewed my medical records because they're "older" and I have no medical or income, so I CANNOT afford to see a Dr. Mountains of evidence MORE than proving several severe health issues easily amounting to a disability. He made ALL kinds of false statements and assumptions instead of asking me questions. He gave NO WEIGHT to the opinion of the physician I saw most recently because he's ONLY a PA, even though he works under the direct supervision of a Dr. This man is an IMBECILE who's apparently only concerned with maintaining the HIGHEST DENIAL RATE ANYWHERE of 61%! Almost DOUBLE that of ALL OTHER ALJ's in the entire nation!The average in CA. is ONLY 34% and his own office is ONLY 49%!

This judge gave great weight to the testimony of the experts who did not have a face-to-face interview with me and little weight to the doctors who had a personal face-to-face interview with me. Judge Harrell's final determination was filled with subjective inconsistency and relied on his on medical reasoning. Judge Harrell played doctor with my case. Of course, I appealed to the board in Virginia who discovered that the audio tapes of the medical doctor and vocational experts were missing and remanded my case for a new hearing in front of a different judge. Judge Harrell definitely needs a refresher course in ethical behavior.

I wish that all Judicial officials could take a page from this Judges court etiquettes.

Also did i mention the 3 cancers i had so far??? including the eventual loss of my kidney, as well as 5 other disabling conditions??? Also, they changed dates around of dr's. i saw to discredit me, as well as left data out completely, altered some facts, some dates, and actually made up things i supposedly said that i did not say!!!

P.S.S. the dates are wrong too, it took me over 3 years to be denied from the time i applied not the 8.5 months they say here, just more lieing @ss jewberment crap!!!!!! Oh and get this the judge states to try to discredit me anyway possible, "Indeed treatment records reveal that the claimant had no psychological complaints, and no suicidal thoughts on nov. 22, 2011. (Ex 36f, at 5) Further a mental status examination showed that the patient had normal orientation, affect, speech and memory."

Judge fortune or mis-fortune as he is referred to by those who have the mis fortune to be in his court is the worst type of person the world has produced.

I had four experts witnesses find in my favor, two are doctors, one was fortunes own expert on my kind of heart condition and the vocation expert, he had gone out and found another doctor that said I was not disabled. To call this obscene is an understatement and to call him a professional or judge is and over statement. If you get this judge, be afraid, very afraid.

Judge Harrell is very intimidating. In addition, he broke Social Security laws when I had to see him more than once, and he referred to my previous hearing when I had no legal representation. By SSA law, he was not allowed to review my previous hearing because I did not have legal representation. SSA law also states that once a judge had denied your case, you will not see that judge again. Further, he intimidated the Occupational Expert when she said there was no job I could do. He basically forced her to change her decision. To cover his errors, he claimed that he audio portion was distorted, and I had to return again. All in all, I had to see him three times and he broke at least 3 laws. He is the head of the judges in the San Bernardino area. AWFUL JUDGE!

Nice smiley-puss who is pleasant in the hearing room and a nasty creep in his opinions. I really do not know how he sleeps at night. He has condemned many legitemately disabled people to lives of abject poverty. He has adopted a definition of disability different from the standard that is contained in the social security statutes and regulations. The protection we all pay for with our social security taxes is not available in his hearing room. He denies claims by ignoring treating opinion evidence and just making facts up out of whole cloth. And there is nothing we can do about it. Northern Arizona no longer has the benefit of the social security system that they paid into because of this creep and the others in this ****-hole of an office. My advice; if you are disabled and live in Northern Arizona: move. There is no fair hearing in this office, much less before this "judge."

He is far from a fair judge and he should be brought up on charges for how he treats the people who come before him. I have never met a more unpleasant person in my life and for him to be someone in authority and sit in judgement of others lives is wrong. VERY WRONG. To call people liars and say they are fat, lazy, or any of those things is wrong. He should not be allowed to stand in judgement of people until he has walked in their shoes! He has no respect for anyone's problems in life, so why should they give him respect. FOR HEAVENS SAKE, he rolled his eyes. Teenage girls do that when they are told to do something. This man is no better than a spoiled teenager only he is given the job of calling someone a liar!! I sure would like to see if he treats his family & possible friends the same way he treats the people who come before him in his job. Being a fair judge is a good thing, being one who does not actually listen to the facts before him and makes a decision is a whole other ball game.

This Judge is not meant to be a Social Security Administrative Law Judge because he clearly cannot tell whether or not a person is disabled . I stood before this judge and told the truth about everything ,i took my 84 year old mother who testified under oath that i was disabled and i also took my wife who testified on my behalf yet judge jesse j. pease choose to use a fabricated report that was done by a social security medical examiner who never met me ,examined me ,spoke to me ,or had any real complete history on the genetic bone disease i have . the judge used his one fabricated report or what social security called a reasoned opinion to arrive at a disapproved decision to deny me the disability benefits i rightfully deserve. I paid into the system for 30 years and then when i really needed the help financially from the money i paid into the system i am denied.I have a genetic bone disease called osteogenesis imperfecta and i have had 166 major bone fractures iam disabled and cannot work and i have been denied benefits from social security.I am about to lose my home to foreclosure because i have no income because i cannot work and the financial help that i was always told wuld be there for me when i needed it is being withheld because of a bad decision by an incompetent judge.all i can say is how disappointed in our system and that i hope someday that judge pease understands how i feel . i know one thing i kept my integrity and didnt resort to lying or finding some cheap cop out way of denying my claim for whatever reason. Its very sad and very embarrassing to see such an incompetent judge sitting in some makeshift court room pretending to be some one important .i have more respect for the guy who cuts my grass than i do for judge pease because at least i can trust my landscaper and most inmportantly he doesnt lie .your the one who has to go to sleep each night knowing you did the wrong thing to many people or maybe you have a hard time sleeping knowing how dishonest you really are.ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT ILL PRAY FOR YOU JUDGE PEASE THAT SOMEDAY MAYBE YOU WILL COMR CLEAN AND DO THE RIGHT THING

I saw Judge Duane Young today. He was empathetic, knowledgeable about my case and handled my aged case in a way that I felt heard and understood unlike before. I feel providentially blessed that he was my judge

Judge Shave seems very nice. I do not approve of comments that she made about my case. She got information about me that when she blerted out a question about something I said to a Disability Psych. that did a interview with me was way not correct. I feel that she should not attack someone in that way. What was said is Depervation of Character and was way out of line. I would like to see that report and set the Record Straight. She took 3 different accurances and 3 different people and combined it into one incident with 1 person. Which leads me to believe that she was either fed the wrong information by someone that was not listening completely or she intentional did it. I would like to think she would not do that. She stated that she was not medicaly qualified to look at pictures that go with the report made by a Qualifed Phyician and Surgion who took the pictures of my insides, So my question would be how can you be qualified to do a Medical judgment as to if a person is truly in pain or disabled. I feel that judges that sit on this panel should have a medical background in order to get the right decision. Other wise this is a true injustice to the persons she or any other judge that has the authority to make the decision as to how much pain or the nature of the persons true disability.
