Texas District Court Reverses ALJ

April 21, 2015. In this case, on referral from a Texas law firm, we successfully argued that the assessments of plaintiff’s treating psychiatrist, SSA’s consultative examiner, and the underlying record did not support the ALJ’s RFC finding which excluded any social functioning limitations. Specifically, the consistent opinions of both medical experts described her ability to function socially as “poor”, or as “markedly limited”, opinions which were expressly supported by repeated mention in the medical records of her extreme social anxiety with obvious physical manifestations of same, including frequent crying, shaking, nervous tics, etc. The court remanded, over SSA’s objections, for rehearing.
