Layson v. Berryhill

United States District Court, D. Maryland

February 21, 2018

Thomas A. Layson
v.
Commissioner, Social Security Administration

         Dear Counsel:

See See Craig v. Chater 76 F.3d 585

         Mr. Layson protectively filed his claims for DIB and SSI on October 2, 2012 and October 15, 2012, respectively. (Tr. 162-66, 177-82). He alleged a disability onset date of September 15, 2008. (Tr. 175, 177). His claims were denied initially and on reconsideration. (Tr. 71-84, 85-104). A hearing was held on July 27, 2015, before an Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”). (Tr. 39-70). Following the hearing, the ALJ determined that Mr. Layson was not disabled within the meaning of the Social Security Act during the relevant time frame. (Tr. 17-38). The Appeals Council denied Mr. Layson's request for review, (Tr. 1-5), so the ALJ's 2015 decision constitutes the final, reviewable decision of the Agency.

         On appeal, Mr. Layson argues that the ALJ erroneously assessed his RFC by: (1) failing to order a consultative examination to obtain an opinion regarding his physical limitations; and (2) failing to include mental limitations, despite acknowledging that he suffers from an affective disorder. [ECF No. 20-1 at 9-15]. These arguments are addressed below.
