Judge Robert Spurlin seemed to be in a great mood today. I went to court very well prepared. Their medical doctor and the Vocational expert already submitted a report that I was truly disabled. went in at 8:27a.m. my appointment was set for 8:30a.m. I was in there for maybe 10 minutes if that long and got my approval. He only asked me about 3 simple questions as he had already had his decision before I got there. so, I can’t complain at all. Thank God.
I went to court with this judge on Oct 23, 2012 I had Bypass Surgery in May, 2012 a heart attack in July of 2010…This judge seems to be polite he asked me questions in which i answered I mentioned that i had my bypass surgery which he had over looked my attorney told him which exhibit page it was on in which he seemed satisified also stated that I had gotten worse since the last time I saw him which was last year (remanded back)after I start to read off my meds he stops me and says that he needs to have a M.E. and wanted to reschedule my hearing OR I could have a inaroggatory intern answers somes questions and I may not have to come back for another hearing. He also wants to change my onset date…Dont know if that means I might be approved and also to give him a few weeks he didnt say that my case was closed but, my attorney says to give him 30 days…I hope this will all be over soon…Ive had this judge twice the only issue the last time isthat all my medical records were not in even though he gave TEN days to have them in so I was DENIED at that point. Now Im so hoping that this nightmare is almost over…
Judge Spurlin is also known to harass and ridicule disabled people. He’s a worthless piece of garbage.
I just found out this guy is a judge. Completely and totally unqualified to be one, in fact not even qualified to be dog catcher. His main attribute is ONE thing. Connections. That’s how he got the job, and that’s how he’ll keep it. In fact, it scares the heck out of me that he has this kind of power over people’s lives. No moral compass, and no values. Good luck Florida. We were VERY glad when he left his state job and moved away. Kentucky just…smells better now.
The issue being discussed is whether Judge Spurlin does HIS homework. Just because a judge is approving some cases–that happen to be yours–it’s both self-serving and idiotic to assume all criticism is invalid. If you have nothing more than childish comments to add, take a walk.
You guys are too rough on him. He is just a Judge that wants only the truly disabled to collect benefits. Once you get to know him he is not a bad guy and in fact he does pay my clients. Ease up people just do your home work and he will eventually pay your cases.
Brusque, unprepared, and elderly. During hearings, it appears that he looks for reasons to raise his voice. In one instance, he loudly alleged that there was no medical evidence to support a RFC from a particular treating source, only to be corrected that there were indeed more than 63 pages of evidence from this provider that he apparently failed to examine or even notice. In his denials, his idea of dealing with Social Security Ruling 96-7p is to simply insert in italics all of the claimant’s testimony on one page. He then generally dismisses all of it as unpersuasive, without actually discussing what specific aspects he found objectionable.
This judge violated several procedures reviewing disability cases.
