Woodard v. Astrue

Francis M Jackson

Case Conclusion Date:July 19, 2011

Practice Area:Social Security

Outcome:Judgment for the Plaintiff

Description:This was a social security case in which the social security judge refused to consider the medical evidence from the treating physician, claiming that he did not have enough experience with this patient to give a valid opinion. Mr. Jackson persuaded the judge in the United States District Court that was incorrect based on a recent case, Soto-Cedeno v. Astrue, from the First Circuit Court of Appeals
