Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit posts four today

Zenith Electronics v. WH-TV Broadcasting (ND Ill.)

Boiles, Loretta v. Barnhart, Jo Anne B., Comm. of Social Sec. (SD Ind., Larry J. McKinney, Chief Judge)

Before COFFEY, MANION, and ROVNER, Circuit Judges. ROVNER, Circuit Judge. Loretta Boiles applied for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) in March 2000, claiming that she was disabled because she suffered from several maladies, including pseudoseizures. Her claim was denied initially, upon reconsideration, and after a hearing before an administrative law judge. The ALJ found that although Boiles had a severe impairment, it did not equal a listed impairment, and that she was capable of working with certain restrictions. Because the ALJ did not adequately support his decision that Boiles’s condition was not equal in severity to a listed impairment, we vacate the decision and remand for further factfinding. * * *

For the reasons stated above, we VACATE the decision of the district court and REMAND to the Social Security Administration for further proceedings.

Mannie, Lynnette v. Potter, John E. (ND Ill.)

Miranda, Brian v. Leibach, Blair (CD Ill.)
