    I had some type of hearing today but still unsure if this is the judge as I was completely overlooked he never introduced himself by name, given instruction as to who voice was speaking on the conference call (I had to ask). My original claim was filed in 2012 and denied following a substantial length of time going thru the process of denial denial denial by the state but won my federal appeal. I call BS winning on a federal level it’s just to allow for some type of correction and/or mistake written within your final denial. This process should be fair it is now 2019 and using medical reports from 2014 that I do not have copies of 7 years is a long time. It felt like let’s open her wounds and put salt on them. Very difficult to hear as I am still living with what took place within a difficult period of time that I deal with daily. The process felt like it was being held to move my file and close with other denial not for fact finding.

    Doesn’t appear to be particularly bright and certainly does not understand the medicine well enough to evaluate orthopedic spinal injuries. Sadly, doesn’t know what he doesn’t know.

    I had the opportunity to present my case to Judge Kuperstein and could not have been more pleased. There will be some time before he renders a judgment, since one of the most recent doctors did not submit his notes yet and I wasn’t as organized as I thought I was.

    Judge Kuperstein seemed to honestly listen to my answers and I felt that he was compassionate. As we were finishing up, he took an extra minute to explain that he is bound by the letter of the law regarding sedentary work options, despite the fact that those jobs might not be currently available.

    My gut is telling me I will be denied again, but I sincerely believe that the Judge gave me a chance to put my facts forward on open ears. I can’t bring myself to act like a whiney b-ch and cry the blues or play up my pains because I have too much respect for myself and the court. I’m sure Judge Kuperstein can see right through the acts, too.

    I’m looking forward to the outcome and can only hope that Judge Kuperstein completely understands why I can’t work, even in a sedentary position.

    Just got my denial notice. I coughed intensely from my asthma throughout the entire hearing. I have such trouble breathing on an everyday basis. This judge’s perspective is erroneous at best. He is a symptom of what’s wrong with CT State government. How can I work when I can’t even breathe without talking???

    ALJ Kupertein is very pleasant off the bench, but on the bench he’s ruthless. He has made numerous claimants cry and focuses on minutia to the determent of the claimant.
