as i said above, on 3/18 this judge seized upon my twice-weekly alcohol use, and called it "abuse". this led him to negate all my medical records, saying i could function without "alcohol abuse" (2 times weekly) if this guy wants to deny your claim to keep his NHC ratios in order, he will find a way.

Very pleasant judge. Knows when he has to do a fully developed hearing and also when he doesn't. Likes to cut to the chase on clearly solid cases.

i dont know how my hearing will be decided, but he was very even-tempered and unimposing. i was worried, but he seems very fair.
