vocational expert about exertional limitations resulting from deep vein

base his recommendation on a finder of waiver. The Magistrate Judge
IT IS ORDERED that defendant’s cross-motion for summary judgment

UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
correctly concluded that substantial evidence in the medical record
supports the Administrative Law Judge’s finding that plaintiff’s deep vein
thrombosis does not cause him any functional limitations.
