Reasons for Remand - W.D.N.C.

Published by David Paletta

Social Security Disability Appeals REMANDED
in the United States District Court
for the Western District of North Carolina
January 1, 2012 - December 31, 2013
*


DISCLAIMER.  It is not possible to accurately synthesize the reason for remand into a sentence or two.  I have done the best I can.  However, clearly the best way to understand the reason for remand is to read the entire Decision.  You may access the Decision by clicking on the Case name below.


(1)  Substantial evidence did NOT support ALJ's decision (16 cases).
(2)  Hypothetical question did not include all impairments (2 cases).
(3)  ALJ failed to resolved conflict between VE's testimony and DOT (2 cases).
(4)  Remand due to Byrd v. Commissioner (4th Cir. 2012) (2 cases).
(5)  ALJ relied on Grids when there was a nonexertional impairment (2 cases).
(6)  Remand due to new evidence (1 case).
