Texas District Court reverses ALJ

March 24, 2017.  A claimant with diabetes and complications from diabetes was denied benefits when the ALJ found that he could perform other work, after dismissing the opinion of the claimant’s treating physician that he could only perform part-time work at best as the opinion was inconsistent with treatment records.  The district court held that the ALJ improperly analyzed this opinion as required by the regulations, finding that the purported inconsistency did not excuse the ALJ from “bypassing the detailed analysis” required in the regulations, and remanded for further proceedings.
