He has openly admitted his bias. He is a joke.
This ALJ is a complete A__hole. He is egotistical, quick tempered, and lacking any moral ethics. He likes to bully claimants and their attorneys. I agree with the above posts. He needs to be investigated.
The most dangerous kind of ALJ–has an agenda and a robe. Unable or unwilling to apply the law to the facts, rather applies world view to the facts. Feel very sorry for anyone whose life rests in his hands. May he never face such judgment while experiencing the most difficult times in his life.
I completely agree with your opinion of Judge Mark O’hara!!
Need I say more?
This ALJ is far from fair as his approval rating and denial rating suggests. He will cherry pick his decisions to support his ill advised residual functional capacity assessment and purposely takes testimony out of context. He spends most of his time questioning the vocational expert in regard to an individual’s past relevant work to set up his denial. He routinely dismisses the opinion of the treating physicians even when they are supported by the record and accepts the opinions of the state agency even when they are clearly outdated and not supported by the record. Social Security has taken steps in reference to ALJ’s who they believe pay to much but I wish they take the time to investigate ALJ’s like the above who have no intention of paying cases that are supported by the record. Unfortunately, there have been and will likely continue to be people who will not receive benefits because of this ALJ’s bias.
