Adaire v. Colvin. U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. 18 February 2015. "Nevertheless the administrative law judge (Barbara J. Welsch) concluded that the applicant was capable of doing unskilled light work of a routine and repetitive character and therefore was not disabled." "The administrative law judge's opinion is riddled with errors. Indeed, no criticism that she made of the evidence presented by the applicant and the numerous professionals who had evaluated him was supported by the record. Her principal error, which alone would compel reversal, was the recurrent error made by the Social Security Administration's administrative law judges, and noted in many of our cases, of discounting pain testimony that can't be attributed to "objective" injuries or illnesses—the kind of injuries and illnesses revealed by x-rays." "What makes the error in this case well-nigh incomprehensible is that there was "objective" evidence of pain—plenty of objective evidence"

Judge Welsch completely ignored the opinions of my family doctor, my psychologist and even social security's own psychologist. She cut me off from the very first answer I gave. All she wanted was a yes or no answer. It was like she just wanted to get out of there and go home. She was ruder than Judge Judy and purposely intimidating to a person diagnosed with anxiety disorder. That completely shut me down. I felt prejudged from the moment she began speaking to me. It is a crime that she has not been removed from this position. She has absolutely no knowledge of mental health issues.

She was very snotty from the get go, looking as if she wanted to call me a liar and kick me out of the room. I could tell she had something against me as soon as she seen how young i was and how i looked.

Please check your calculations this ALJ has an allowance rate below twenty percent and is the lowest in allowance I believe in the region if not the country. She is a very low allowance rate judge.
