Graves v. Colvin, No. 16-10340 (5th Cir. 2016)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff challenged the denial of disability insurance benefits, arguing that the ALJ erred by failing to ask a testifying vocational expert whether her testimony was consistent with the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT), as required by an agency policy interpretation ruling, but nonetheless relying on that testimony. The court concluded that the ALJ's procedural error was harmless and does not warrant reversal. Because plaintiff does not raise any other grounds for reversal, the court affirmed the judgment.
