Date Filed Document Text
March 26, 2012 Opinion or Order Filing 19 MEMORANDUM OPINION: In sum, although the ALJ gave some valid reasons for not fully crediting plaintiff's subjective allegations of pain and limitation, the ALJ erred in determining plaintiffs residual functional capacity. The ALJ weighed the opi nion of a lay person as if it were the opinion of a medical source, and assessed a residual functional capacity that was not supported by any medical evidence. For these reasons, this cause will be reversed and remanded to the ALJ in order for the AL J to obtain medical evidence addressing plaintiff's ability to function in the workplace with her impairments; andformulate a new residual functional capacity for plaintiff based on the medical evidence in the record. Accordingly, a Judgment of Reversal and Remand will be entered separately in favor of plaintiff in accordance with this Memorandum. Signed by Magistrate Judge Lewis M. Blanton on 3/26/12. (CSG)
