Jones v. Astrue, 09-3282
Denial of petitioner's application for disability benefits affirmed
Jones v. Astrue, 09-3282, concerned a challenge to the district court's affirmance of an ALJ's denial of petitioner's application for disability benefits. In affirming, the court held that, given the consistent objective medical opinion from both petitioner's treating physicians and the agency physicians that her condition was benign, it cannot be said that the ALJ's determination that petitioner exaggerated her allegations of disabling pain was patently wrong.
