I am one who knows. This woman is a joke. She sued SSA in Federal District Court for retaliation related to "protected EEO activity;" gender discrimination and age discrimination. She had to concede that she could not adduce evidence of gender discrimination or age discrimination. In a long decision, the Federal District Court found that SSA did not engage in retaliation. The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit was more terse, stating in fewer than three pages that the Federal District Court "nailed" the claim in its decision. This so-called judge has cost taxpayers thousands of dollars for a fraudulent lawsuit. And, she continues to pay claimants at a rate that exceeds SSA's averages. She earns more than $170,000.00 a year. But, SSA is too afraid to remove her, even though deposition testimony during the Federal District Court proceeding suggests strongly that she engaged in highly unethical behavior in three realms: she used her office to advance personal gains in an action before the Maine Human Rights Commission; she engaged in vulgar and condescending communications with a former employee about her female colleagues and other female office staff; and she discussed Agency business with public attorneys outside of Agency protocol to promote legal action against the Agency. She claims that she is "moral." She is nothing more than a sanctimonious fraud.

I am William I had KATHERINE MORGAN for my ALJ she was Very passionate, The Doctor that was there was Very knowledgeable.. He has been in the medical field for a long time. I had just a couple interruptions by myself with Updates they did not have of recent Medical papers. When my lawyer asked me what my "Normal" day was like.. I broke down and could not talk after how my morning routine went.. Judge Morgan told me to take my time and asked if i needed a break. Bottom line is before talking to my witness (my GF) describing the past few years she said she did not need to hear my witness or the Voc person on speaker phone.. she said "I am approving your Disability and back 26 months of backpay when I filed" I had her decision right there and did not have to wait 6 weeks. She wished me Good luck at least 3 times after her Gavel fell. Now my life can go on without the worries. I Thank you Again Honorable Katherine Morgan, You helped me bring Closure to the tragic event that started when I was 19.. I am 50 right now.

I have not received my decision, so this is an unbiased review. I found Honorable Judge Katherine Morgan to be kind, compassionate, and patient. She intently listened to my testimony and asked fair questions all the while paying close attention to my answers. I was brought to tears at one point while discussing a tragedy that happened in my past and was told to take my time testifying, that my sadness was justified. This Judge has my utmost respect.

This judge is incompetent? Probably. But, look at her "approval" rate--among the highest in the entire Ageny. Haven't you heard what EVERYONE says about her? "Always late, but worth the wait!". I wonder what you did or said that led her to deny your claim. You can always appeal to the Appeals Council.
