Nov. 10, 1994

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico [Hon. Carmen Consuelo Cerezo, U.S. District Judge ]

Paul Ramos Morales on brief for appellant.

Guillermo Gil, United States Attorney, Maria Hortensia Rios, Assistant U.S. Attorney, and Robert M. Peckrill, Assistant Regional Counsel, Dept. of Health & Human Services, on brief for appellee.

D. Puerto Rico


Before TORRUELLA, Chief Judge, SELYA and CYR, Circuit Judges.

Per Curiam.

We have carefully reviewed the record and claimant's brief and find none of claimant's arguments meritorious. Vocational testimony was not required. The ALJ gave valid reasons, based on a fair reading of the record, for discounting claimant's subjective complaints and concluding claimant retained the capacity to perform one of his former types of jobs as a personal driver/chauffeur.
