The following 7th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion was posted after IL deadline Tuesday:
Trisha K. Reynolds v. Kilolo Kijakazi, Acting Commissioner of Social Security
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, Fort Wayne Division
Senior Judge Joseph Van Bokkelen
Civil. Affirms an administrative law judge’s denial of Social Security disability benefits. Finds the ALJ did not err by failing to include in Trisha Reynolds’ residual functional capacity determination that she could not be around other people. Also finds no medical evidence called for a qualitative interaction limitation, and the ALJ was not required to intuit such a limitation from the administrative record.
