Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 30 F.3d 138 (8th Cir. 1994)

Submitted: August 1, 1994. Filed: August 9, 1994

Before McMILLIAN, FAGG, and BOWMAN, Circuit Judges.


Robert Roberts appeals the judgment of the District Court1  upholding the Secretary's decision to deny him disability insurance benefits and supplemental security income. We affirm. For reversal, Roberts argues the administrative law judge failed to consider his impairments in combination, improperly analyzed his behavior at the administrative hearing and testimony, ignored the opinions of health care professionals, posed a faulty hypothetical, and erred by finding him capable of returning to his past relevant work.

We have carefully reviewed the record, the parties' briefs, and the reasoned opinion of the magistrate judge. We conclude that the Secretary's decision was supported by substantial evidence on the record as a whole and that an opinion by this Court would lack precedential value. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the District Court without further discussion.

AFFIRMED. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.


The Honorable Jerry W. Cavaneau, United States Magistrate Judge for the Eastern District of Arkansas, to whom the case was referred for final disposition by consent of the parties pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c)
