IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ANDREW LEE HILL
CASE NO. 2:12CV00144 BSM
CAROLYN W. COLVIN
The recommended disposition submitted by United States Magistrate Judge Jerome
T. Kearney has been received without objection. After carefully reviewing the recommended
disposition, it is approved and adopted in its entirety. Accordingly, plaintiff Andrew Lee
Hill’s request for relief is denied, the decision of the commissioner is affirmed, and this case
is dismissed with prejudice.
It is a tough day at the social security administration when a half-blind man with
severe mobility problems is told to get off his dead-dog behind and get a job. Despite serious
reservations about the Administrative Law Judge’s decision, the function of the district court
on appeal is not to weigh the facts. It is merely to determine whether the ALJ followed the
correct procedure and made decisions that were supported by substantial evidence. Because
the ALJ met these two standards, his decision is affirmed, and this case is dismissed with
IT IS SO ORDERED this 26th day of March 2015.
