In addition, the Appeals Council erred in failing to obtain vocational expert testimony to assess the effect of pla intiffs nonexertional limitations. As such, this cause will bereversed and remanded to the ALJ in order for the ALJ to properly develop the record with regard to plaintiff's COPD; reassess plaintiff's residual functional capacity based on t he developed record; and obtain vocational expert testimony to determine the effect of plaintiff's nonexertional impairments on the occupational base. Accordingly, a Judgment of Reversal and Remand will beentered separately in favor of plaintiff in accordance with this Memorandum. Signed by Magistrate Judge Lewis M. Blanton on 9/12/12. (MRS)
