    ALJ Thomas relied on medical findings of a dr. that had been charged with Medicaid fraud. He admitted no liability but paid over $200K in restitution to Federal and State governments several years before he botched up the facts in my case. ALJ denied disability to my grandson who was born with a congenital heart defect and the dr. testified the date of disability began 1 month later and used wrong SSA guidelines. I just found all this out in 2024 and now SSA is taking my SSDI for an “Overpayment” dating back to child’s date of birth, over 18 years ago. Dr information is ALL PUBLIC INFORMATION. Dr sanctioned by his state medical board; never to work in public service again, yet in 2016 he’s working for the very government he defrauded. Only in America!

    I had my hearing on Nov 21 2016 . after waiting 3 years and 4 months.The honable judge was business like but courtesous and polite.Asked questions that were I guess reason able. Hope I hear something soon.lost my home and wife with this social security process. God bless him.

    I found Judge Thomas to be fair-he wasn’t cold at all, he ran a tight hearing, asked all the questions to the Vocational Expert with various hypothetical situations, listened to my and my lawyers hypothetical scenarios in response. I was confused as to why he asked if I went to the casino (??)and if I had a Facebook-but I guess maybe that was to see if I socialized at all. I was easily able to prove I almost never go out-the most recent outing I had was my son’s high school graduation which was only possible because the school made some accommodations for me like a golf cart to bring me to the field and back, better parking etc. The VE agreed to no work possible on both our hypotheticals for my sleep disorder and no work possible on my back disorder on my lawyer’s hypothetical which was based on past work write ups etc. Just doing the waiting game now…..

    Don’t understand the comment about Judge Thomas being colder to claimants and worse to reps. He ran a logically organized hearing, he allowed the claimant to add a final closing comment, he asked me about where I lived (firm I work for was not local). In short, he seemed to be one of the good ALJs, the kind I like to appear before. Business-like, courteous, rational. Definitely not cold.
