I found Judge Foley very polite and seemed to be very knowledgeable about some of my medical conditions. He did however seemed upset with the lack information in the medical records sent from numerous doctors. I would hope that none of this would be held against me, as I have no control of what is in the medical reports. He also seemed concerned that after I had been denied previously twice and was financially suffering and tried to return to work but only made it 4 months before being terminated for to much time missed for hospital stays but made a substantial amount of money during that time before I refiled for disability. I hope he does not hold this against me because I want to work but just am not able anymore with numerous health problems. He seemed fair and I certainly hope so because I am at the end of my financial means.

I had heard negative comments about this judge before going into my hearing, but I didn't find them to be true. He made me feel comfortable and was very pleasant. He did ask questions, but nothing that I felt was out of line, condescending or inappropriate. I felt he paid attention to my responses and understood my condition. I also believe that god is going to let this man the right decision in my favor for my disability.....Thank you so much Mr.Foley for your kindness....

Wow! the previous comments are in contrast to my experience with Judge Foley. I felt his questioning of my case was reasonable and I did not feel that he was being disrespectful at any time during the hearing. I am not just saying this to earn brownie points. Regardless of the outcome of my claim I did not find him to be unreasonable. I feel if I were in his position I would want to know the same things he wanted to know about my claim. The part of this process I have a problem with is not the judge. I may not understand every aspect of the process but I do know I waited nearly three years for this hearing and now I am waiting another 90-120 days for a decision on my appeal. I don't think this wait time is reasonable, especially after waiting so long for a hearing. What's the point of having a hearing if the judge or any other decision making person gets an additional 3 -4 months to pick apart the claim. The playing field is certainly not level. I didn't get an additional 3-4 months to explain or prove my case further. I want the people making the decisions to understand it is pure torture to make people wait and wait and wait on an answer that should have been given at the time of the hearing. I submitted evidence to support my claim and I don't know why that is not sufficient to have made a decision at the time of my hearing. If my claim is denied I think I should be able to skip any further processes with this office and appeal directly to the US Supreme court level with a valid argument that my claim was handled unfairly. If ODAR gets additional time to try to prove me able to work. I should be awarded the same amount of time to show why I am unable to work. It's sad that this system is broken there are people who don't need benefits that are approved automatically and people who really need it cant get it and pay the price for the ones taking advantage of the system. I'm tired of not knowing where my next meal is coming from and if you have to endure this for three years you would be too. please make a decision on my case, "reasonable" left the building the moment the hearing was over without a decision being made. I have lost everything due to my medical condition and I just want to recover some of what has been lost and survive as best as I can. If there is not a case out there that has been approved on less than what I submitted than I won't complain but I know better and I am just as entitled if not more entitled to my benefits as some people who have been approved for benefits but are able to work. I wish I could work, I could make more monety.. and those people taking advantage of disability need to either pay back the benefits or go to jail. If my claim is denied or my back pay altered there is no way at this point for anyone at Social Security Administration to argue that this is NOT a matter of discrimination.

This so called Judge is just that, he judges you even before the case starts, he uses half of what you say against you and doesn't listen to anything you have to say, I'm a smoker so he judged me as unfit for benefits I worked and paid in for, he used only parts of my statements to rule against me in my claim not even caring that I haven't been able to work, do yard work or have any kind of a meaningful life since my health has went down so much, I tried to go back to work and found out that my legs, heart and back would not allow me to do so, but this a$$ thinks I should sell off my bought and paid for home and take a chance on a job hundreds of miles from where I live and that the jobs I can do are plentiful outside of my county! He doesn't care that if I was able to find a sit down only job that I could do that if the company decided I wasn't able to do it later on that me and my family would join the ranks of homeless street people that are gathering in this country.

Judge Foley: Arrogant, condescending, rude, smart ***. Treats claimants as if they are on trial for horrendous crimes. Fails to allow claimant to thoroughly defend case. When trying to explain illnesses, etc., he will cut you off and tell you how wrong you are. Makes pre-judgments without hearing sufficient evidence or allowing claimant to demonstrate when needed. Makes unrealistic judgments as to claimant's health, without requiring proof while claimant is right there in front of him. Hesitant to interview witnesses and get the whole picture.
