Liskowitz v. Astrue, 08-1576

In an action involving disability insurance benefits, denial of plaintiff's claim is affirmed where: 1) substantial evidence supported the ALJ's findings concerning plaintiff's residual functional capacity; and 2) it was not error for the ALJ to rely on the testimony of a vocational expert to show that there were a significant number of jobs plaintiff was capable of performing as the testimony was neither objected to or contradicted.
