William C. Bens, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Secretary of Health and Human Services, Defendant-appellee, 960 F.2d 149 (6th Cir. 1992)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 960 F.2d 149 (6th Cir. 1992) April 21, 1992

Before KEITH and SILER, Circuit Judges, and WELLFORD, Senior Circuit Judge.


The claimant, William C. Bens, appeals the district court's adverse ruling on his Disability Insurance Benefits claim under the Social Security laws. The relevant facts are set forth in the United States Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation, which the district court adopted and modified on April 22, 1991. Because we find the Secretary's findings of fact to be supported by substantial evidence, see 42 U.S.C. § 423(f); Gibson v. Secretary of Health, Educ. and Welfare, 678 F.2d 653, 654 (6th Cir. 1982), that the appropriate legal standards were applied, id., and for the reasons set forth in Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff's opinion, we AFFIRM the judgment of the district court.
