Judge Edward T. Morriss is a really Nasty human being which I believe is Racist! I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer and I had to stop working all together. I was appointed to this judge and I was denied consistently with me having a great lawyer and with all of my doctors showing paperwork and medical records. He doesn’t care if you are prone to seizures headaches brain cancer or any type of cancer depression anxiety memory loss vertigo etc, This man does not care! It’s like he bases all of his decisions on appearance and without a Vocational Expert! I have been dealing with disability over 5yrs now and I am currently at Federal Hearing and he still denied my case once again! I am to the point where I just wanna give up on everything even life because I cannot survive anymore! He really doesn’t even care about the paperwork or anything if you’re Caucasian you would have a better shot at your hearing. This is so sad that this judge is making decisions based on looks and not facts..This is just Sad. If anyone can help me find the correct person to file a complaint I would.

I think all Judges after my experience with this one should have to be educated on AUTISM TERMINOLOGY how can someone judge something they know nothing about .Even though I tried to help him. VOCAL TICS OR VOCAL STIMMS ARE NOT THE SAME THING AS BED WETTING.Ha Ha Ha .And how can a child be pre school age in the year 2015 But as written this same child be in kindergarten in 2014 being evaluated by the school. I don't know does not add up to me. And how did this child only go to 9 therapies when for two years we have been going to 4 therapies a week with 6 therapies in total all of them once a week for two years .This as well does not add up. Does it ?And no mention or did you notice the physical impairment of this poor child .You did not see that he had leg braces on .Shame Shame Shame. Well I will say one thing because of this experience with this judge I will not stop till all disability judges have to take a course and be certified that they pass that course to be able to judge AUTISM. I am not just my sons mother but I am also my sons advocate surprise ! Help is on the way AUTISM COMMUNITY . I will not stop we all have enough on us .We want help and we want answers.

This man is utterly clueless. He hasn't got the faintest idea how to apply Social Security's Rulings to the facts. For example, he found, without the aid of a VE, that a limitation to frequent handling and fingering has no impact on the light, unskilled job base. The Appeals Council will be busy dealing with these decisions.

I had my hearing in October 2014 with Judge Morris and I am happy to say that I I just received a fully favorable decision in the mail. I had come here and read comments about this judge many times before court and was scared to death to appear in front of him. I kept calm and talked to my attorney basically while he listened. He only asked me a handful of questions, there was no VE or ME present and I thought sure I was going to lose. I answered all the questions as truthfully as I could and didn't try to sugarcoat anything. Everything I said matched my medical papers. He listened to my answers and was very nice when he spoke to me. So, for those reading now although he is a tough judge he does give approvals. I pray for those going through all this. It is hard and I was very close to being homeless. With the help of my children we have barely made it. I am still waiting for benefits so I am not out of the water yet. God Bless the ones coming to this site now.

I had the unfortunate circumstance to have Judge Morriss as my judge for my hearing. I thought that only after a hearing can a judge make a decision. Isn't that what a hearing is for? This judge determined my case unfavorable before the hearing. A vocational expert was not in attendance. The only reason why a vocation expert would not be in attendance is if the judge decided he is definitely going to find the outcome favorable or definitely find it unfavorable. The 17% approval rate and a 62% denial rate says everything anyone needs to know about him. This is not free money Judge Morriss. I paid over 45 years into Social Security. I hope that Judge Morriss or anyone in his family does not have to suffer hardships and have to go groveling to a man like him. Judge Morriss - There but for the grace of God go I. Shame on you.

My husband is 90% disabled with a joint finding of the VA and DOD rating scale. He was denied by Judge Morriss after waiting almost the full 6 months for his decision. Two medical boards found that he was unable to do any reasonable/relatable work and that he was no longer able to function under the normal requirements of the general work force and still denied by Judge Morriss! We are currently asking for an appeal on the council level and I truly hope his stats finally reach the appropriate eyes and something is done about him.

I had a hearing with this judge in October. It is now almost March. Only one action has been taken on my case. I was informed by SSA that he has 6 months to make a decision. It seems as though he is going to take every moment of that time to make a decision. If you happen to read this Judge Morriss, you should consider that citizens (you know..the people who worked and paid taxes?) can't sustain years without income. The time you take to deny far more claims than you approve can leave people homeless, and penniless. I understand that you must consider all arguments, but these delays are cruel and damaging to families. All I can say is that while I found you to be polite and professional, your lengthy decision making process is unfair. If you believe that every disabled person should wait this long after an already long hearing process, you do not have our interests at heart. While you collect a paycheck, some of us are struggling to feed our families. I worked for this insurance. I got hurt. I didn't ask for this. I am sure that I will not be one of the few that you feel qualifies for the insurance I paid into because I had the misfortune of being randomly assigned to your docket. All I can say is that I hope you are a better person in the real world than you are within ODAR. I will appeal my case to next level, and it will be overturned or I will file a new claim and hope that I get a judge who realizes that those cases stacking up in front of them represent real people who need their cases heard and answered. God bless you, Judge Morriss. Everyone has to answer to someone for their indifference and hatred for those less fortunate than ourselves.

I just found out that Judge Morriss is going to be my ALJ. Looking at his statistics, I am wondering if I should even bother going. My disability has been life changing for my whole family, but I now doubt that I am going to see a dime of the money I worked to pay into the system that is supposed to protect me should I become disabled. His approval rating is 16% less than ALL ALJ's in his office. That to me sounds like he is more likely to deny cases that other judges would approve. I sincerely hope that I receive a fair chance at trial, but I have my doubts. There are no other comments here regarding this judge, but I am preparing for what will most likely be a loss. I did find out that judges review the case before the cases are scheduled to determine if there is enough evidence to make a favorable decision without a hearing. If the case is reviewed prior to scheduling, why would the outcome be any different 30 days later? It would seem any judge has already made up their mind before going to hearing. That borders on prejudice if you ask me. I hope that I am wrong about this judge and his record. I hope that I am the 1 in 4 that wins. If not, I have no idea how we are going to make it. I worked for this insurance, it was not handed to me/
