this judge is one of the worst. Most of his decisions are either dismissed or denied. In fact, he was taken off the bench for a while because his stats were in question. However, this dinosaur was brought back because the federal government is backed up and short staffed. During my hearing, he was very patronizing and sarcastic. In my "unfavorable decision" there was no specific reason for my denial. Just a lot of embellishment. Between this alj's bad reputation and my strong medical evidence, I might be able to get his decision remanded by the Appeals Council.
