Ind. Decisions - One Indiana decision today from 7th Circuit

In Weatherbee v. Astrue (SDInd., Pratt), a 15-page opinion, Judge Cudahy writes:

Gregory K. Weatherbee applied for Social Security disability insurance benefits and supplemental security income payments after suffering serious injuries in a motorcycle crash. Weatherbee’s application was initially denied by the Social Security Administration. An Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) also denied Weatherbee’s claim after conducting a hearing finding that Weatherbee could perform a significant number of jobs. Weatherbee appealed the ALJ’s denial of his claim to the district court, who found that the decision to deny his application was supported by substantial evidence. We affirm.
