Owens v. Social Security Administration
ORDER adopting 18 Recommended Disposition. Substantial evidence supports the ALJ's determination. The Commissioner's denial of benefits stands. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 7/28/2014. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
KENNETH D. OWENS
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting
Comissioner, Social Security
The Court adopts Judge Young's unopposed recommendation, NQ 18.
FED.R.Crv.P. 72(b)(1983 addition toAdvisoryCommitteeNotes). Owens has
some serious health issues. But substantial evidence supports the ALJ' s
determination that Owens has repeatedly failed to stick to his treatment plans.
Burnside v. Apfel, 223 F.3d 840, 844 (8th Cir. 2000). Nor did the ALJ err in
assigning little weight to Dr. Qadir's or Dr. Ball's opinions, which were
conclusory and unsupported by the record.
For these reasons, the
Commissioner's denial of benefits stands.
D.P. Marshall Jr.
United States District Judge
