I received a partial judgment from Curran and one can see from his decision he will hunt and peck what ever evidence he wishes to deny a favorable decision to a high income earner. He used my age as the main reason to give me a partial decision and not my disabilities I suffered when I first applied for back almost two years ago that made me unable to work anymore. ****** my lawyer and myself to no end. Whoever else comes into this man's court room come very prepared and make sure you have your RFC filled out and in your records. Have all your "i's" dotted and your "t's" crossed. You'll need to beat this guy at the game. He will listen more to the "vocational expert" than you.

Daniel Curran Unlawfully and willfully (Judicial Temperament)denied me my witness (Friends, family, Doctors and their reports/lab work/evidence/medical records)and asked me if I needed any one subpoenaed and when I said yes, he didn't make any of them show up for testimony. At one point his clerk looked at me and said "You don't need to be subpoenaing anyone, including your mother!" This is all illegal, including coercion by Daniel Curran toward me to try and force me to agree with what he is doing by unlawfully controlling the court room with no due process at all and not allowing me to have a fair trial and Daniel Curran is falsifying documents by filing reports and saying I have no evidence, and bringing in his friends and his own Doctors who have never met me or treated me or even talked to me before about my illness instead of my witness and Doctors to testify on my behalf to my court hearing. This guy needs to be looked at before "We the People" investigate him!

I felt that it was only right to update everyone after my previous post. My husband Wendell Lynn Wall 45 yrs old, husband, father, grandfather and friend to many passed away after fighting for 3+ years multiple illnesses and system shut downs. He went to be with God on February 8, 2014. He always said he would never live to see his disability approved. Congradulations Judge Curran another win under the belt.

After waiting 7 months for your judgement, we get it on the same day the doctors tell us that my husbands time is limited. He is on continuous o2 now and is unable to get out of bed even on somedays, leaves the house only for MD appts or hospital. So here the last day of 2013 all I can say is I WILL PRAY FOR YOU. We started this 3 Years ago and God willing we will see it to the end. DISAPPROVED, WE WILL TAKE YOUR ADVISE AND APPEAL WITH A LAWYER.

A bias joke of an ALJ who likes to play GOD and thinks he is a ME and VE.

The man is unstable. Behavior totally inappropriate. Denies African-Americans no matter how severe their medical conditions. So sad that after waiting so long, he was uninterested and dismissive. He must be stopped!

Curran I could say a lot of cuse words about his decision on my wifes case.This would'nt help at all and I would get upset futher more,but I can say tho.He does not read what is important.If you need all this information to prove your case then why in the heck is it all not read ??? If you did'nt have it then they would say why dont you have it &^%$#@#$%^&* My wife had a great job and pay was forced to leave because of a botched back operation,the doctor Kevin Teal did and he still works on people. Justice there is none.If you get it praise the lord and run with it.

There should be no stars at all for this judge. I hand delivered evidence yet his assistant pulled only what she wanted him to see. She did not pull my financial records for which I had my SSA 1099s and bank statements to back me up. I had a letter of proof for reporting work but it did not use the word work so he would not even allow me to show it to him. There are major discrepancies in my case money wise but he would not allow that either because he was not aware of it. My case is three combined in to one. One took place years ago and I have a letter that proves I did not owe. Yet the monies were taken from me 5 years later without 60 days notice. I requested a waiver after receiving the notice yet the money was taken a few days later even though the letter stated they would take $50 a month out. I requested a waiver which was approved and made no difference. Did the judge know about that? No he did not because his assistant did not pull those papers and like I said he did not know it was three cases rolled into one. A social security worker took it upon himself to write a letter that stated I was being re-evaluated medically, I never reported workers comp. and I never reported my marriage. I have proof for all three which makes him a liar. Did the judge allow that? No he did not because his assistant did not pull those records to put with his files. My husband was no where around when these incidents occurred with exception of our marriage. We went to the social security office three times and they made a copy of our license. The license had an error on it and had to be corrected. We went before our marriage, after our marriage and when the license was corrected. How in the world was I able to get a new social security card and a new Medicare card and use them the next month after our marriage if I had never reported my marriage? Get real. Part of the monies have been paid back either by my agreeing to pay back $100 or $200 a month and by money being withheld without my knowledge or agreement. Those monies have not all been applied to the monies supposedly owed. Did the judge know that? No he did not because his assistant did not pull those records from my files and add to his. My attorneys filed for an appeal and a waiver the same month i received the letter of overpayment on one case. The local office lost those papers. That attorney no longer works social security cases for the Texas legal Hotline for Seniors so therefore he could not take my case back. The other attorney no longer works for Texas Legal Hotline for Seniors. Did the judge know that? No he did not because his assistant did not pull those papers from my files to add to his. Did he go over my files with a fine tooth comb as he stated? NO HE DID NOT. Why? His assistant did not pull those pertinent papers and therefore he did NOT have those pertinent papers to go over with a fine tooth comb. I have 90 days from the date of that hearing to come up with why my husband who was no where around during these incidents save the marriage...why we cannot afford to pay it back. We are both senior citizens and this is all so asinine. If you are working with a Vocational Rehabilitation Service your benefits continue. Then why did mine end?

This Judge seems to be an idiot. He not only disregards professional reports on one's disability, but he appears disinterested in the whole hearing process. He can't wait to get it over with and deny the poor soul's fate. Someone really needs to review him and make sure he doesn't affect anyone's life ever again. This is serious. He has no idea how devestating his decision is to a disabled person. Get him out of here.

To the individual who thought Judge Curran's decision was fair. You were lucky and fortunate not like the many others who were denied without justification

Judge Curran knows how to elecit information needed to make a thorough assessment of a case. I found his decision to be fair and did not feel as if he were trying to trip me up on testimony I provided. Very impressed!!!

Another negative ALJ out of this office. Look for him to try and trip up Claimant's in regard to their testimony. His decisions appear poorly written as well.
