Deirdre Horton decided that I am not disabled. I suffered a traumatic brain injury in April of 2011, had my first seizure when I returned to work in August 2011, and have been having seizures periodically ever since. I am suffering from "major depression" according to my therapist. The judge decided that I am not disabled.

This other post is very unfortunate as Judge Horton is a compassionate, decent, and above all else fair Judge. She is fair because she listens carefully and considers all evidence-- all evidence. People are VERY lucky if she is their Judge.

This judge is incompetent. She does not review the facts. She commented on my ability to speak English. I was born and raised in Connecticut, but my Hispanic heritage was something she could not look past. She found me 100% disabled, and acknowledge I was disabled from the injuries I sustained, but determined that somehow, during all the spinal surgeries I had, I should have been able to work. I am 100% disabled from the injuries I sustained, not argument from her. I was not disabled when I got injured she contends. Not disabled during the years it took me to recover from the constructive spinal cord surgery. 5 fused discs, 5 inoperable ruptured ones. I tried to work, as Social Security said if I could not, they would put me back on Social Security. They lied. The judge used the fact that I tried, under a Social Security program, against me, and I have been denied benefits that are mine. This Judge is racist, incompetent, and should be removed from the bench. She is a disgrace to the judicial system in this country. She has absolutely no understanding of what people will do to try and work, and will use any attempt by you to struggle, as an indication that you are not disabled. She is representative of everything wrong in the judicial system in this country and hides in her cubicle passing out judgements that are unfair, hidden from public. I would like to see an ethnic breakdown of her rulings. She has caused much harm to my family and dismayed my my doctors, the best Spinal Cord surgeon in this state cannot understand how this person/judge could be so out of touch. She used her medical knowledge as fact, overriding what every doctor I went to said, that I was, and have been disabled, 100% since I tried to enroll back in Social Security. If you are on Social Security, never ever try to work again. They will use it against you and steal what is rightfully yours. I challenge her to answer these charges. I did not have the $70,000 dollars more needed to take the lawsuit to the next level, so now I am disenfranchised because of a racist, incompetent Judge, who uses her own opinion, not based on the evidence presented to her, but on her racist agenda. I will never forget the phrase,"You speak English very well Mr. Romero." I also speak German, she did not ask me about that. When I asked her what my ability to speak English "very well" had to do with anything, she refused to answer.
