Randolph v. Barnhart, 386 F. 3d 835 - Court of Appeals, 8th Circuit 2004

Michael J Haller Jr.

Case Conclusion Date:September 13, 2004

Practice Area:Social Security

Outcome:Affirmed

Description:This case originated in Louisiana. I appealed to the Federal District Court of Nebraska. After an unfavorable decision, the case was appealed to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. An excellent opinion by the treating physician was ignored by the Administrative Law Judge in Louisiana, an opinion that is normally entitled to greater weight. A panel of three Circuit Judges, BYE, BOWMAN, and MELLOY, heard the case and issued a published decision written by Judge Bowman.
