I had this judge..all that is said about him is not all true..he gave me time to tell him about my problems..was a little harsh at times but over all was not that bad..my attorney was very helpful Sandra Serra… had to wait a few months for my decision..but got a partial favorable decision…not bad for a judge that denies most of his cases…
I have had Judge Young in a number of hearings over the years. Occasionally he will be professional in a hearing and keep proper decorum. However, most of the time he will be actively aggressive towards claimants and attorneys demeaning both for their disabilities and trivial matters respectively. When preparing my client’s for hearing I tell them that this judge will be gruff and potentially even condescending towards them. When clients get flustered in front of Judge Young, I have noticed he will attack them even more. Whether he is trying to trip them up or is just frustrated with people who are scared when yells at them I do not know.
It is true that he is a relatively low approving Judge, but it is his lack of professional decorum that is truly aggravating. I know when I have a case with Judge Young that my client is going to walk away from it shaken, confused, scared, and possibly angry because of his treatment towards the client during the hearing, regardless of whether the case is ultimately an approval or denial.
If a Judge in either Maryland District or Circuit Court acted the way Judge Young acts when on the bench they would be disciplined, and if they persisted, would ultimately be removed from office. The fact that Judge Young has been this way for years is perhaps the greatest testament that the Administration does not care how low approving Judge’s act so long as they don’t attract attention to themselves.
ALJ Robert Young is the worst ODAR ALJ in the USA. He is very dumb as well because after a remand from Federal Court he was unable to follow simple instructions and he trampled on my rights by not committing several procedural errors that are obvious and glaring. He did not use a vocational expert and he did not proffered medical evidences from a consultative examiner despite the reason that he used the evidence to deny me. To make his decision so worse he copied and pasted previous decision of another ALJ despite the fact the this ALJ’s decision is already been vacated and reversed. He is a disgrace to ODAR Baltimore. This ALJ is a bad egg, if you are unfortunate to get him, I am sorry for you and start planning your appeal immediately.
judge young seem to be a fair and honest no nonsense judge me I am still waiting to find out if I was approved or denied disability but during the hearing itself he seemed to the fair listen to everything. so he seems to be as I said a prayer no nonsense judge to me and honest.. awaiting my letter saying I was approved or denied will get back and right again afterwards
The judge Robert W Young was NOT fair to me in my case. He did not want me to go into details as to why I can’t work. I have ” SCIATICA”.
Sciatica – Topic Overview
What is sciatica?
Sciatica is pain, tingling, or numbness produced by an irritation of the nerve roots that lead to the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is formed by the nerve roots coming out of the spinal cord into the lower back. It goes down through the buttock, then its branches extend down the back of the leg to the ankle and foot.
What causes sciatica?
The most common cause of sciatica is a bulging or ruptured disc (herniated disc) in the spine pressing against the nerve roots that lead to the sciatic nerve. But sciatica also can be a symptom of other conditions that affect the spine, such as narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis), bone spurs (small, bony growths that form along joints) caused by arthritis, or nerve root compression (pinched nerve) caused by injury. In rare cases, sciatica can also be caused by conditions that do not involve the spine, such as tumors or pregnancy.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms of sciatica include pain that begins in your back or buttock and moves down your leg and may move into your foot. Weakness, tingling, or numbness in the leg may also occur.
Sitting, standing for a long time, and movements that cause the spine to flex (such as knee-to-chest exercises) may make symptoms worse.
Walking, lying down, and movements that extend the spine (such as press-ups) may relieve symptoms.
How is sciatica diagnosed?
Sciatica is diagnosed with a medical history and physical exam. Your doctor will ask you questions about your symptoms. And your doctor may be able to tell just by asking you these questions that you have sciatica. But X-rays and tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are sometimes done to help find the cause of the sciatica.
How is it treated?
In many cases, sciatica will improve and go away with time. Initial treatment usually focuses on medicines and exercises to relieve pain. You can help relieve pain by:
Avoiding sitting (unless it is more comfortable than standing).
Alternating lying down with short walks. Increase your walking distance as you are able to without pain.
Taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen (Aleve).
Using a heating pad on a low or medium setting for 15 to 20 minutes every 2 or 3 hours. Try a warm shower in place of one session with the heating pad. You can also buy single-use heat wraps that last up to 8 hours. You can also try an ice pack for 10 to 15 minutes every 2 to 3 hours. There is not strong evidence that either heat or ice will help, but you can try them to see if they help you.
Additional treatment for sciatica depends on what is causing the nerve irritation. If your symptoms do not improve, your doctor may suggest physical therapy, injections of medicines such as steroids, stronger medicines such as muscles relaxants or opioids, or even surgery for severe cases.
