Texas District Court Reverses ALJ

May 12, 2015. In this case, on referral from a law firm in Texas, SSA moved for voluntary remand after our brief was filed. At issue primarily was the ALJ’s finding that the claimant had no “severe impairments”, even though the evidence supported a finding that the claimant had intractable migraine headaches related to a brain tumor (meningioma). An interesting (although tragic, in a way) feature of this case was the fact that the ALJs nonsevere impairment finding went on ad nauseum about the fact that a “hemangioma” (birthmark) could not possibly be disabling!
