Schomas v. Astrue, No. 13-1197 (7th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Schomas, 54 years old, suffers from scoliosis and degenerative disc disease. Following a hearing, the Social Security Administration denied his application for Disability Insurance Benefits. The district court and the Seventh Circuit upheld the denial, rejecting a challenge to the ALJ’s credibility finding and assessment of his residual functional capacity. The court acknowledged that the ALJ’s decision was “problematic,” but concluded that Schomas waived most of his arguments, and that the rest were unfocused or undeveloped.
