Moore v. Colvin

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Civil Court
Social Security
Case Number: 
No. 13-2460
Decision Date: 
February 27, 2014
Federal District: 
N.D. Ill., E. Div.
Reversed and remanded
Remand was required for new hearing on claimant’s application for Social Security benefits, where ALJ denied said application, after finding that claimant, although suffering from number of impairments including migraine headaches, was capable of performing her past work. Although ALJ cited to portions of record that supported instant denial, ALJ failed to explain why she did not find persuasive significant portions of record that contained evidence from claimant’s treating physician and others that indicated that claimant’s migraine headaches precluded her from performing her past work for significant periods of time throughout work week.
