Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 141 F.3d 1169 (8th Cir. 1998) Submitted: March 11, 1998. Filed: March 26, 1998

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Iowa.

Before ARNOLD and GIBSON, Circuit Judges, and NANGLE,2  District Judge.


Sandra Malloy applied for federal disability benefits in 1994, citing muscular pain. An administrative law judge denied her application, and the district court3  affirmed that decision in 1997.

We have examined the administrative record and have considered the arguments of the parties. We hold that the decision of the administrative law judge is supported by substantial evidence on the record as a whole, see, e.g., Novotny v. Chater, 72 F.3d 669, 671 (8th Cir. 1995) (per curiam), see also 42 U.S.C. § 405(g), and we therefore affirm the judgment of the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.

A true copy.
