Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today, re SS disability insurance benefits

In Kevin Loveless v. Carolyn Colvin (ND Ind., Van BokkelenO, a 13-page opinion, JudgeKanne writes:

Kevin Loveless applied for Disability Insurance Benefits claiming that he could not work because of a shoulder impairment, diabetes, and pancreatitis. An Administrative Law Judge concluded, however, that Loveless could perform light work with restrictions. The Appeals Council and the district court upheld that determination, but Loveless insists that the ALJ erred by minimizing the opinion of his personal physician and disbelieving his own testimony about the limiting effects of his impairments. We reject these contentions. * * *

The ALJ’s decision is supported by substantial evidence. Accordingly, the district court’s judgment is affirmed.
