I agree with the comments here. Judge Oullette is a bias and unfair judge. I also won a appeal with a favorable decision, but had to go back to his court room. He was upset and off record stated things. He denied my case and this time took out of context and rewritten incomplete statements from my medical reports to serve his denial objectives. Also has discredited my doctors. He ignored again and dismissed my medical condition and medications that I take. My doctors are reputable with good credential. Having problems appealing because of his prejudice & bias decision. Something should be done to find justice to the disable. Will taken it to upper courts.

Judge R. Oullete is not a fair judge. He denies everyone. He was upset when I won that first appeal that my case was reverse & sent back to his court room. He stated things off record (wonder if he has done this to anyone else) stating if he had all medical reports his decision would of been different. The situation is he did have them all. Still denied my case and wrote his statement in a way that if I appeal this case again it would be unfavorable. He took little bits of my medical record just enough to confuse the appellate judges & omitted parts that would prove my disability, so that appellate judges will not reverse his decision. There is no Justice here even if there is evidence supporting my disability.... He has discredit prestige doctors whose backgrounds and experience should of been taken into consideration. Judge R. Oullete for my understanding has a one track mind in a denial records no matter if the person is disable in wheel chair unable to do anything as well if there's medical record stating your disable.

Judge Ouellette is a mostly fair Judge but very judgmental on appearance, He calls it as he see's it. I lost with him when I should have won but I blame my atty for not presenting the evidence. I didn't like that he stated that I attempted to join the Marine Corps but was "Unsuccessful". He did not have enough information on my military history to make that biased assumption and it had nothing to do with a dicission on my disability, it did not need to be said. I did my active duty enlistment almost complete and in the infantry at that, I got an "Honorable Discharge with Medical Conditions" when I attempted to re-enlist 3 years into my contract of a 3 year enlistment.

I went before judge Ouellette and was denied. He is very unfair and did not act like he was even interested in you as a person. I am still waiting another court date. I seen him in 2011. If you go before this man you better expect to be denied. Good luck to all who gets appointed to see this judge.

I just had a hearing before this judge on the 15th and I am so glad I did not read any of this beforehand. It is stressful enough going through this process and then waiting on a decission from what seems to be a very unfair Judge. I have to say though that he was not disrepectful in anyway and was very professional throughout the hearing. I can only hope that this man does the right thing.

They need to get rid of this person. He judges you before you even meet him. All the lawyers will tell you how unfair he is and he feels people who apply for disability are lazy and worthless. That is coming from lawyers who have dealt with him. They need to clean slate and get rid of these old morons who have no clue what people are dealing with. If your medical doctor knows what you are going through, that should be enough to make a fair judgement. Karma will come back to this man in the end.

I agree with the other comments.....this Judge does not understand apparently what he is reading....he discredited my doctor (which is one of the best in his field)basically because I was not seeing him anymore.....because he RETIRED..said the last report was old and went with the new doctors report (there was only 3 months between them)..said I hadn't seen my original doctor enough for him to know me.....crap, been seeing him for 10 years.....and he contradicts what he says in one paragraph to another. OH, and the doctors that social security has are clowns also....they re-arrange your interview sentences in a way that changes the whole meaning. Yes, there is no way this judge should have denied my case. Well, I am going to submit my findings to upper government and have them look into this matter. This Judge should be FIRED....

no star low enough for this sorry excuse for a paid Federal employee...disrepecfulful, snears, and his attitude of superiority over me and my case ranks him on a list to not even be eligible to pick up dog poop. Should have been terminated a long time ago. He changes his decisions from one minute to the next,in a hearing, and then in a final decision again...makes me wonder what type of mental problem he has ...GET RID OF THE THIS OVERPAID ... before he ruins over peoples' lives.

I agree with the other comments! They covered all the bases. This guy is a power freak and has no empathy whatsoever. Time to retire from the throne your majesty.

This judge is totally unable to be objective in his decision making. He fixates on aspects of the claims that are secondary and seems to think he has personal knowledge of persons character. Something terrible must have happened to him in his past to make him like this. I know he doesn't believe it exists by he may be suffering from PTSD. If Ebenezer Scrooge was an ALJ he would be just like Mr. Ouellette.

I can honestly say that This Judge takes things out of context, hears only what he wants to hear, dismisses what he doesn't want to hear, uses only information that is detrimental to the case, discards or takes out of context information that is beneficial, and seems to create opinions about one's personal life without knowing them at all. In my opinion this Judge is a disgrace to his profession.

This thing lies in his own written decision. His own record indicates that he can't come to an objective opinion based on evidence. He decides cases through his own distorted lens of racism and sexism. He is incapable as a Judge because of his prejudices and hatred for people that need help. Charles Manson would be a more intelligent and effective Judge than this old fool. This person should be BARRED from law. He is old, foolish and ugly inside and out. He is a wanna be Ted Nugent.
