Texas District Court Reverses ALJ
October 2, 2015. A claimant with mental impairments was denied benefits. Two state agency examining consultants diagnosed the claimant with depression, and difficulties in maintaining concentration, persistence, and pace. While the ALJ discussed these opinions, he did not explain the weight he gave to them in making a mental RFC determination. We successfully argued that the ALJ failed to explain the weight assigned to the state agency examining consultants’ opinions, and the district court remanded for further proceedings.
