Indiana appeals court upholds denial of benefits

The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals recently affirmed the ruling of a Northern District of Indiana Court to deny Kevin Loveless long-term Social Security disability benefits. Loveless was seeking Social Security disability benefits for a shoulder impairment, diabetes, pancreatitis, and other health conditions that he deemed the cause of his inability to work and earn his daily wages.

In a ruling penned by Judge Michael Kanne, he stated, “Loveless insists that the ALJ (Administrative Law Judge) made a mistake by minimizing the opinion of his personal physician and disbelieving his own testimony about the limiting effects of his impairments…We reject those contentions.”
