Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 141 F.3d 1168 (8th Cir. 1998) Submitted Feb. 9, 1998. Decided Feb. 20, 1998

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of North Dakota.

Before FAGG and MURPHY, Circuit Judges, and SMITH,*  District Judge.


Joe A. Jacobson appeals the district court's ruling upholding the Commissioner's decision to deny Jacobson disability insurance benefits. After careful review of the administrative record and the parties' briefs, we conclude substantial evidence supports the decision of the Commissioner that Jacobson is not disabled for social security purposes. Accordingly, we affirm the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Ortrie D. Smith, United States District Judge for the Western District of Missouri, sitting by designation
