The case was Thomas v. Colvin, 11 C 8956, decided September 5, 2014.  Horn’s client suffered from back, neck and shoulder pain, insomnia, depression, and anxiety.  Social Security’s credibility analysis was flawed because Social Security used meaningless boilerplate, discredited Plaintiff solely because her complaints were not substantiated by objective medical evidence, drew inferences about Plaintiff’s symptoms and their functional effects from a failure to seek treatment without considering her explanation that she was having insurance problems, and failed to discuss Plaintiff’s testimony about her medication side effects.

Highland Social Security Disability Lawyer wins in US Court of Appeals

Written by John Horn. Posted in Cases Won, Claims Won, Law Office News, Social Security Disability

Highland Social Security Disability Lawyer John E. Horn of the law firm of Horn & Kelley, P.C., won in the United States Court of Appeals a new hearing for a client who claim for social security disability benefits was denied.   The case was Murphy v. Colvin, 13-3154, Seventh Cir., July 22, 2014.  The claimant was denied social security disability benefits throughout the entire administrative process and also by the United States District Court.  The district court ruled for the Commissioner in 12 C 3879.  Plaintiff appealed.  The Seventh Circuit reversed July 22, 2014.

The Seventh Circuit held that Social Security did not adequately explain her credibility determination and it was not supported by substantial evidence in the record.  Social Security drew adverse inferences from facts without having the claimant explain them (claimant’s cessation of physical therapy and a vacation she took).  Murphy v. Colvin, Slip opinion at 7-9.

The Seventh Circuit held that Social Security’s RFC determination was not supported by substantial evidence.  No medical evidence in the record contradicted the claimant’s testimony that she could not perform light work.  Murphy, Slip Opinion at 10-14.

The Seventh Circuit finally held that Social Security improperly relied on the grids to deny the claim because there were non-exertional impairments and Social Security did not include in its hypotheticals to the Vocational Expert the limitations it found in denying the claim.  Murphy, slip opinion at 14-17.
