Court date: Dec 19th, 2019 Decision received: Feb 13, 2020 Decision- unfavorable Judges attitude: negative Nancy (first class A******) F - I'm 37 years old and suffer from severe migraines, Achilles tendon pain, passing out, and some other things. Before we started my attorney asked the if he would turn down the lights because fluorescent lighting is a trigger of my migraines. The judge agreed and kindly did it. The judge and attorney talked for about 5 minutes, than the judge looked at me and said, "I have some questions for you." I raised my right hand as he asked. I was asked 16 questions or so. This judge will FAST TALK you so you don't have time to think. Here are the questions so you can come prepared: 1. What is your name? 2. SS #? 3. Birthday? 4. How old are you? 5. Do you smoke or last time smoked? (they have records) 6. Do you drink? 7. Do you do illegal drugs? 8. How did you get here? 9. Do you have any jobs that are side jobs or off the books? 10. Ever been arrested? 11. What do you do all day? 12. Are you in school? 13. Do you have any training? ( mechanic, hair school, etc) 14. Where do you live? 15. How long have you lived there? 16. Do you currently work? Remember, they will use ANYTHING against you. Example- if you say you took the bus to your hearing they will assume you know how to navigate the public bus system well. Lets say you lie about your birthday they will assume your lying about everything else they ask you. After the questions he talked to my attorney. Than the vocational expert said, "I could be a dishwasher." KARMA catches up to people when they least expect it.

This judge is an *****. I am 59 years old, 80 percent disabled by the VA and I have a service dog. This Judge would not allow me to have my service dog in the courtroom. My anxiety was at an all time high and he did not give a rip. He glared at me and I knew once my service dog was not allowed in the courtroom he already made his judgement. In addition in the unfavorable decision letter he used that against me and said I do fine without a service dog. This guy is a first class *******. He should retire.

If the rating could go negative this guy would be at a negative 100000000. He does not care or take anything into consideration and is just plain unfair. For someone that wants to work but cannot do to their disabilities and just because of age, gets denied..... I have a lot more to put on here but won't because it will just be a lot of nasty stuff and turn to threats.... So all I am going to say is..... WOW!!!! .....*$mh.

My Hearing was on 12/21/2012. The Court completely ignored medical records submitted after the Hearing (by extension of time) from a major stroke incident which would prove that the claim was within the time limits required and ignored extensive medical records from the Veterans Administration claiming that they did not receive them even though my attorney provided me with proof that not only were they sent, but also received by the office. The VA records show that the claimant has: Aortic Valve Disease, chronic PTSD (from the Vietnam war and from another source), Tachycardia, Sinus Nerve, Injury to the peroneal nerve, uncontrollable Hypertension, Inververtebral Disk Desease, Depressive Disorder, and is partially paralysed. Any one of these would result in a disability award except the Judge decided that he wanted to dwell of the Claimants recently deceased life partner of 32 years with questions about homosexual issues such as what illnesses my partner had. A detailed appeal was made to the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review and the claimant has requested a copy of the audio transcript however thus far they seem to be avoiding providing that to me. This tranascript is needed for a future Federal Lawsuit against the Social Security Administration as this current appeal is the last required stop before being permitted to file in the Court. Is there a personal Judge bias here or just how disabled do you need to be to claim?
