Minor v. Astrue, No. 08-3375

By FindLaw Staff on July 29, 2009 3:33 PM

In a dispute involving an application for disability insurance benefits and Supplemental Security Income payments, district court judgment is reversed where the claimant had since died of lung cancer and thus the ALJ's determination that her complaints regarding her pulmonary condition were not credible should be remanded for further proceedings, including a determination as to whether claimant suffered from lung cancer at the time the ALJ discounted her claims.
