Colorado District Court Reverses ALJ.
October 14, 2016. Here, a claimant required a service dog to assist him with a head injury, anxiety, and depression. The ALJ failed to address the claimant’s need for his service dog at work and denied benefits. The district court held that the ALJ’s failure to include the service dog in his RFC finding, or at least inquire about its impact on the number of jobs available when questioning the vocational expert, was error that required remand.
