Before PHILLIPS and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges, and CLYDE H. HAMILTON, United States District Judge for the District of South Carolina, sitting by designation.
Louis B. Harrison appeals from the district court's order affirming the decision of the Secretary of Health and Human Services to deny his application for Social Security Disability benefits. Harrison argues that the Secretary's decision was not supported by substantial evidence in accordance with 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). We have reviewed the record and heard oral argument and are convinced that the Secretary's determination was supported by substantial evidence. We therefore affirm the district court's judgment.
