Unbiased judging? Not even close! By LAW the ALJs are required to be unbiased. The law does not apply to Gary Suttles as has been proven time and again. When I caught him giggling at my hearing I had to look this man up. No wonder he breaks the law - he hasn't even completed his training requirements! The man refuses to watch a 17 minute video regarding equal rights for gays, lesbians, transsexuals, and bisexuals for fear of offending his religious rights. Yes, read that again. He is SUING his employer rather than take 17 minutes to meet mandatory minimum training requirements. Does that really sound too stupid to believe? Look it up! Just type Gary J Suttles and the term LGBT in your search tool and prepare to see your page fill with facts. I hope you have some reading time. Never mind his newsworthiness regarding Mr. McMurray above, he's popular as well. (Thank You for your service, Shawn.) And that's just the evidence that made the news so we'll never know what other training he's lacking in. Did this lack of training effect your case? It did mine! He picked and chose only the evidence in my Doctors' and Neurologists' records to support his agenda, and when there weren't enough facts to support his agenda, he simply made numbers up based on nothing presented to him in my records without acknowledging one single fact out of pages of documents to support my crippling disease. He made claims my daily life was "normal" with "no issues" although every claim he referenced to come up with this conclusion was taken out of context. Every incident he cited required assistance which he managed to leave those details out. Sorry to say it folks, but the system I paid into non-stop for 30 years and many of you even longer is broken. How do the judges get away with this? Simple! The "system" made them untouchable. If the judge can't be held accountable, he/she is supposed to have the freedom to judge without bias. Look it up. It sounds like a good plan, but let the record speak for itself. As I type this 84% of the people sitting through his hearings are "Liars". Many folks want a free ride and I get it. I wasn't lying with paperwork to prove it. Were you?

Is Judge Gary J Suttles an attorney 5 USC require ALJ's have Bar Number Is he even eligible to be a so called Judge? Please check on this settlement On January II, 2013, after lengthy negotiations between the Social Security Administra tion ("SSA"), the Department of Justice, and class counsel for plaintiffs, Gibson Dunn & Crutch- er LLP ("Gibson Dunn") and the Urban Justice Center, the parties reached a proposed settlement agreement. The settlement expressly denies wrongdoing on the part of defendant Commissioner. Under the terms of the settlement, a class member whose claim for disability benefits was denied or partially denied during the period from January I, 2008 through the date on which the settlement agreement is approved is entitled to a readjudication of his or her claim before an ALJ other than a Named ALJ, with certain exceptions. (See Settlement Agreement, D.E. # 112-1, at 2 III.A.l-2.) The class member must affirmatively request readjudication within sixty days after receiving notice of his or her right to the relief. (See id.; Notice A, D.E. # 112-2.)

My son has been denied for 7 years and 23 SSA doctors confirming disability. Still denied. Crushed leg , spinal problems, and two strokes. This Judge made almost the same statement " He would see him dead before he releases any funds, or wait until his credits run out (??) " He was over ruled and took a personal issue and went and stopped funding of SSI. This man has real issues. The government needs to stop this guys. I am 71 years old and pay all his medical bills.

THIS JUDGE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MY SON,S EARLY DEATH. HE DENIED DISABILITY THREE DIFFERENT HEARINGS SAYING HE DIDN'T QUALIFY FOR DISABILITY. HIS LAST HEARING WAS FEB. OF 2015 HIS SPEECH WAS ALREADY GOING (HE PASSED AWAY OF ALS) AT THAT HEARING THE JUDGE SAID MY SON HAD NOT SOUGHT MEDICAL CARE FOR THE PAST 2 YEARS WELL, THATS BECAUSE HE HAD NO MONEY OR MEDICAL COVERAGE NOT BECAUSE HE FELT GOOD. THIS JUDGE SHOULD BE DISBARRED AND I AM GOING TO TRY MY DARNDEST TO SEE HIM PAY FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE

This so-called judge loves to belittle people that come before him. Recently my wife had a disability hearing and about all he did was being up her previous marriage and children. You tell me what any of that has to do with getting disability? The rep my wife had also told her that he did the same thing to the very next client she was representing. Seems that the ONLY reason he is still ok the bench is his record of not approving anyone that comes in his court room.

Can I please ask the people who have commented here if they did the "in person" hearing or the "video" hearing? Does it make a difference with this judge?

Judge Suttles stated in court that " he would see me dead before he approves any funds from my account" a quote on court records. He need to be run out of office.

I think it's time to overhaul the ssi systems and get rid of these judges who think they know everything. When I know five different people who get ssi that are convicted felons , drug users makers and destroyers of their families and hard working honest people are turned down well WE HAVE a PROBLEM! When a person gets treated worst than a felon or drug addict(crack, coke) What's this world coming to. Keep up the good job Judge Suttles, you have to retire some time. I will keep going and when I lay here suffering I will think of you.

Judge Suttles denies everybody and I heard the he denied a lady the had cancer and a few months later she died. This is not right and I think that someone need to investigate him. I know there are rules and guidelines to follow, but if a person is disable why would you do that to them. He is using his authority to his advantage. He need to start denying some of these people for SSI that have not put money into the system instead of the ones that have put their money in the system.
