Greger v. Barnhart, 04-35891
Denial of plaintiff's application for social security disability insurance benefits under the Social Security Act is affirmed over claims that the ALJ erred: 1) in finding him and his girlfriend not credible and rejecting testimony regarding his limitations; 2) in assessing his residual functional capacity; 3) by concluding that his psychological problems were not severe when the VA had rated him with a 30% mental disability; and 4) by not ordering a consultative psychological exam in order to fully develop the record.
