I have had one hearing with this judge. She does ask most of the questions. Also she understands claimant's "most of them" continue care and wants the file updated before she decides. With that said I believe she reads the whole file. Doesn't require an opening statement. Seems like most judges do not require it or don't want to waste there time with the rep stating what they have already read. Practice tip: But you must always be prepared to open so you don't look like an idiot.
