Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's denial of claimant's application for supplemental security income is affirmed where: 1) it was permissible for the ALJ to discount the opinion of treating physician that was inconsistent with the physician's clinical treatment notes, and physician's conclusory opinions with respect to the ultimate determination of disability was not supported by evidence; and 2) ALJ's formulation of claimant's mental residual functional capacity was supported by evidence on the record.
