Our family is personally devastated by Judge Bennett's ruling. He ruled against our daughter's disability hearing. Our daughter is 23 years old, has schizophrenia, has an IQ of 78 and is at the developmental level of an 11-year old. She works part-time at a school cafeteria with help from kind staff. At home we help her wash her hair and with dressing appropriately.Today a dental hygienist was upset because we weren't helping her enough with her teeth cleaning and she had black substances and tartar on her teeth. We have an older child with Aspergers that we have not sought disability for as she is able to work. We also rehabilitated another child with Tourette's and our youngest with ADD. Out of our 5 children only 1 is free of neurological challenges and yet we have only sought disability benefits for our most severely affected child. I work as an RN and my husband is a PA. Every day we see people more capable than our daughter who are receiving disability benefits and it is appalling to us the irony of the whole situation. I think judge Bennett needs to spend a day at our house washing our daughters hair, brushing her teeth and driving her to and from work. 11 year olds don't drive. And if she truly is at the developmental age of 11 arent there laws against child labor? Maybe we should just have her quit her job too.

Biased judge. Obvious never read my medical records. Had his mind made up prior to the hearing. ALJ’s are supposed to be independent reviewers of fact. Not biased and lazy.

Everyone is making positive statements about this judge because they got approved and vice versa. Well guess what ? He disapproved me and I will tell you the truth about this judge. He dissects what you say and gives no weight to medical opinions and just makes his own decision based on , well actually I don’t know how he makes his decisions on people because it’s not rational.

Awful judge. Unkempt and unprofessional appearance. Long story short he denied me after making me wait 9 months for a decision. If he is your judge MOVE! And get another one. He denies everyone.

JUDGE NORMAN L BENNETT was understandably inquisitive but listened and made a fair decision on the spot.

I had my hearing with Bennett. Watch out for this judge, he picks and chooses things you say and dissects the parts that are out of context that he uses for his reasons to decline your case. He even added in his decision that I consistently smoke cigarettes and I DONT SMOKE, so he added FALSE information on my case. He took more weight on the Social Security doctor who saw me for 20 minutes, one time, 2 years ago and disregarded my doctor who I have been with for over 11 years.

This judge is not a fair judge. He needs to step down. He has no compassion. Sits on his perch gives you the "mean eye" thats when all your positive goes out the window. I got denied and now are having to go thru an appeal and also was just diagnosed with hemiplegia and i am now in a wheelchair. Thank god for Medicaid because i would not be getting the medical help for my condition. He forced my hand to go on welfare.

Rude, does not care, thinks its a game, no respect, doesn't listen Terrible Judge. In this day and age a Judge should consider all the information. This judge uses personal information he encounters such as an affair that happened years ago, and entered it into the denial and called it "adultry". What kind of person does this to someone who has mental and physical ailments? It wasn't even relevent

He is the absolute worst!!! If you get assigned to him, try your hardest to get another judge to rule on your case. He make me think I was approved & then a few days later, I received the denial in the mail. It was all a big joke to him. Apparently once you get a judge, you will get him again on any appeals. Even with all the medical proof I have of my injuries, as well as doctors notes, it won't matter. I feel doomed all because of this man. It is so unfair. For this reason, I'm leaving this state. I'm sure any other state will approve me immediately. Vegas is one of the worst for any kind of help!!

Judge Bennett , his clerk and the officer in the front office ,were all extremely competent , friendly and ready to listen to me and to my evidence that I presented. He ruled within several days and his total efficency , was above reproach. Even being saddled with no lawyer to represent me , all it took was being honest and showing good evidence.
