    I found this judge to be fair. HE spoke with me and my representative with respect even inquiring about my activities as far as my illness. He was fair with myself and representative with all respect. It was calming to see his pleasant smile as he held court. Thank you

    I do not know this judge, but to answer your question:  to whom can you report a judge’s “awful” behavior,  contact the American Bar Association or that of your state.  Also, a simple search online will give you the names  and contact information of various ethics’ review boards.  Judges, even though most have tenure or are appointed for life, are expected to abide by certain rules  of conduct and ethics.  Besides “knowing the law and courtroom procedure”, these judges are also expected to conduct themselves and their “court” in such a way that their attitudes and tones reflect the seriousness and “judicial-minded ness” of their responsibilities. (They are also expected to write and communicate clearly and concisely.).   
     Know this: A tenured judge CAN be disciplined and even removed from his or her position, although several reports may have to be made and his or her behavior may have to be flagrantly rude, bizarre, extremely dismissive of his or her claimants’ rights,  etc.  Also, judges must not be biased against any race or sex, etc.; must not hint that they are.  There are other ethical rules they must adhere to, and legal ones as well.  (Ignoring or not being familiar with medical records upon issuing a ruling —not good).  If all else fails, contact the media.   Local and state news channels/papers have investigative reporters who will be happy to look into what is going on for you if you feel certain you have been mistreated, were not given a fair and impartial hearing, you were yelled at or treated in an unethical way, etc.  (Most hearings are recorded; get a copy of the tape.)  These judges’ positions are coveted, so there is always a younger, better qualified, less cynical and irritable judge willing to take the older judges’ places.  Im sure SSA would love to hire these younger judges at lower wages, especially if some older judge is behaving in ways that embarrass the SSA in the media.  However, if you are just mad at a judge because you didn’t get what you expected, look out.  You could be sued for libel at the very least.  Remember, most judges are doing the best they can in a system that is cracking under the weight of so many people who are now claiming disability.  At the end of a long day of listening to everyone’s stories, you might be tired and a little grouchy too.  
      But if you have a legitimate complaint, remember too, some of these judges have private practices, so you can go to a webpage and leave a review so that others are forewarned.  
     And know this, if an SSA judge is labeled as HORRIBLE to deal with by a few lawyers, well,  lawyers share information formally and informally, and eventually, there will be negative repercussions for the judge.

    I’ve had one hearing with this ALJ. I found it very hard to understand him when he speaks. He did not seem familiar with the medical evidence in the file. He does not usually ask for opening or closing statements. Questions claimant first and then let’s rep follow up. From the comments by others it sounds like he has a tendency to be less than cordial with claimants.

    THIS JUDGE IS SOMETHING HE DOESN’T LOOK INTO YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS HE PRETTY MUCH TELLS YOU HIS DECISION IN THE COURT ROOM NOT FRIENDLY AT ALL. HOW CAN HE DETERMINE IF YOUR DISABLE OR NOT HE IS NOT A DOCTOR. BUT ALL OF YOUR DOCTOR RECORDS ARE SUPPORTING YOUR FINDINGS. HE GOES ON A SOCIAL SECURITY DOCTOR WORD WHO HAS SEEN ME ONE TIME NOT MY PRIMARY DOCTOR WHICH I HAVE SEEN FOR 9 YEARS WHAT A WORLD WE LIVE IN .

    The judge does not do a indepth study of the evidence of record. The judge discounts the findings of the claimant’s allegations although they are supported by the evidence of record.
