    I had a phone hearing with this judge after providing detailed evidence of my inability to work. The vocational expert who sat in on the hearing determined I could not work as well. During the 40 minute hearing (which started a full hour late), he interrupted me more than 3 times, and gave ygg he a impression he was frustrated with my inability to answer some questions.

    I received his decision (unfavourable) in a timely manner. It was 14 pages with a lot of boilerplate cut and dry language that was used repeatedly throughout the document with a lot of spelling and grammatical errors. But moreover, the document was petty and unprofessional, lodging cryptic accusations at me and my motivations.

    My lawyer appealed, and I just found out the appeals council has determined he was in error. Hopefully, I’ll get a professional, fair judge this time.

    Is this the same Ted Grippo that has about Sacco and Vanzetti?

    I was not prepared. He was straightforward and respectful. I don’t know how all you “disabled” people can talk so badly about someone you don’t know. Just because you did not get your way, so childish and shows mental illness. You should not want to be disabled. Just like you took the timeout to write a bad review. Take the time out to plan or make goals to get out your situation even with your health issues. That a lot of you make up in your head!

    He is as bad as the others on here say, he should be fired or tried for charges. I had him for an ALJ in 2015, I’m still waiting in late 2016 for the Appeals Council to hopefully reverse this vile man’s discretion. Like other people have said on here his typical mode of operation is to gave little weight to your several years doctor and all of the doc’s supporting imaging and tests. Just like above, He ignored the VE saying there was no jobs I could do. He gave me an RFC of “less than light work” yet said I could do fastfood or clerking. My doc gave me an RFC of “not capable of any job” because of a laundry list of serious back problems in all 3 areas of my back, pinched nerves, DDD, broken vertebrates ect., Grippo ignored that. This vile man denies people who clearly can’t work anymore, doesn’t care and laughs it off. There needs to be a petition to remove this heartless thug from his job.

    I had him for a video judge and i am no longer able to do prior jobs and yet he decided that i still can even though my doctors say no and cant do repetative things and that is jobs he says i can do. I am hoping the appeal works it has been long time and lot pain and stress which don’t go away.

    What a@!!!.. Ignores treating doctors opinions and findings. Gives great wieght to CE findings & SDM findings. Chooses only portions of medical records that are not favorable to the claimant being awarded benefits. Does not consider all exertional and non-exertional limitations & what impact they have on the true RFC.

    I live in Ohio & I had Judge Grippo for my video hearing. I was having a bad day on the day of my Hearing & therefor he ruled that my testomony was not “creditible” because it was “vague”! He also decided to ignore my Dr’s report & my limitations, & instead he valued the report of the Dr that SS had sent me to! My attorney & I both agreed that some of his questions were totally out of line!!! He nit-picked my case to death, ignoring all suporting evidence & his decision of denial was extreamly prejudice!! I am very close to lossing everything including what is left of my mind!! This prejudice man has no compassion or empathy and should not be allowed to be a Judge!!!
