Huggins v. Social Security Administration
ORDER Directing the Clerk to forward a copy of Huggins' Complaint to the U.S. Marshal for service upon defendant and to serve both parties with the General Order in Social Security Appeals. Signed by Magistrate Judge G. R. Smith on 7/31/17. (jrb)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
DAVID LEE HUGGINS,
NANCY A. BERRYHILL, Acting
Commissioner of Social Security,
Proceeding pro se, David Lee Huggins has timely filed a Complaint
asking the Court to review the final denial of his social security disability
The Court preliminarily screened his complaint and
thrice ordered Huggins to provide the Court with more information
about his diagnoses, how they affect his ability to work, or why the ALJ
concluded he was not disabled. See docs. 5, 7 & 9. He has finally done
so, explaining that his rheumatoid arthritis prevents him from working
full time by imposing more than minimal functional limitations on his
ability to grasp/hold/pick-up objects, twist/bend/kneel, or stand/walk
without the use of a cane. Doc. 10 at 1. He contends the ALJ erred by
rejecting as insufficient the “physical” medical opinion evidence and
finding his subjective pain testimony less than credible. Id.
This is sufficiently specific to allow the Court, and thus the
Commissioner, to move forward. The Court therefore DIRECTS the
Clerk to forward a copy of Huggins’ complaint to the Marshal for service
upon defendant and to serve both parties with the General Order in
Social Security Appeals, which sets forth the process going forward.
SO ORDERED, this 31st
day of July, 2017.
