Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 883 F.2d 75 (6th Cir. 1989) Aug. 18, 1989

Before MERRITT and KENNEDY, Circuit Judges, and NICHOLAS J. WALINSKI, Senior District Judge* .

MERRITT, Circuit Judge.

The claimant, Marlene Nobleton, appeals the District Court's judgment, affirming the Secretary's denial of child's insurance benefits under Title II of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. § 402(d). The trial court, in a comprehensive opinion, found substantial evidence to sustain the Secretary's finding that Nobleton retained the residual functional capacity to perform a limited range of sedentary work that exists in significant numbers in the national economy. The two issues raised by Nobleton are whether substantial evidence supports the administrative law judge's finding that Nobleton has not presented objective medical evidence to meet Listing 1.03 and whether the ALJ properly evaluated Nobleton's complaints of disabling pain. We have considered the entire administrative record, the briefs of the parties and the opinion of the District Court and conclude that the judgment of the District Court should be affirmed for the reasons stated in its opinion.


The Honorable Nicholas J. Walinski, Senior Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, sitting by designation
