New Acquiescence Ruling

     The Social Security Administration has released Acquiescence Ruling 16-1(7) concerning Boley v. Colvin, 761 F.3d 803 (7th Cir. 2014). I had written earlier about that 7th Circuit's decision.  It took an unusual degree of foolishness and arrogance at Social Security for this case to have reached the court of appeals.

Depending on the claimant's disabiities, why wouldn't that disability itself be "good cause" for missing an arbitrary deadline? How long are we talking here? A week, a month, several months... How about making the ALJs make their decisions within 60 days? An ALJ in Iowa was often taking 9, 10, 12, 13 months after a hearing to give her decisions. If pressured, she (Gatewood) would deny you!
