First off, if I were reading this kind of post, I'd think, "Oh my god, what a paranoid nut-case" I'm not saying that I'm NOT a nutcase (LOL) but that this is what has happened after my hearing before the judge. If you remember my posting of about a month ago, the judge made it clear at the beginning that he doesn't believe there is such a thing as CFIDS, and that all I need is to see a shrink. At the end of the hearing, he called on a witness who is a voc-rehab expert. After establishing her credentials, he asked her about a hypothetical situation. He gave her a profile of someone with some similarity to me and asked if this person could do any kind of work. She mentioned three jobs, and how many openings there were for that kind of work, both in my state and nationwide. Next he asked if, in her professional judgement, that I specifically could do any kind of work at all for 8 hours a day, Mon.-Fri., with only two days a month missed due to illness. She replied, "No." He had his jaw hanging for a moment then ended the hearing. I received his decision over the weekend, and he denied the claim! That was bad enough, but in his written decision he neglects to mention the testimony of HIS expert, which goes against the outcome HE wanted to see before the hearing began! He then proceeds to FABRICATE TESTIMONY THAT WAS NEVER GIVEN TO SUPPORT HIS VIEW! He claims that the vocational witness said that I could do any of the three jobs she described! Pardon me for being long-winded here, but if you or I did this, we would be guilty of several felonies! He omitted the testomony of the expert hired by Soc. Sec., and wrote words that never came out of her mouth! I am, of course, appealing to the Appeals Panel. The proceeding was recorded, and I rewuested a CD of the recording before I got the decision. When the Appeals Panel hears the testimony, they'll see that the judge deliberately falsified evidence, won't they? How many times has this guy committed this particular felony and why is he still able to rule on parking violations, much less the future of people's lives!!!! Any and all feedback REALLY appreciated! Thanks!
