Beltran v. Astrue

United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

700 F.3d 386 (2012)

Facts

Jennie Beltran (plaintiff) applied for Social Security disability benefits and supplemental security income and was denied initially, upon reconsideration, and following a hearing before an administrative-law judge (ALJ). The ALJ concluded that Beltran was not disabled because she did not suffer from a disability defined under the Social Security Act. The ALJ’s decision became the final decision of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration (SSA), Michael Astrue (defendant). Beltran sought judicial review of the denial, and the ALJ’s decision was remanded. Upon remand, the ALJ concluded, again, that Beltran was not disabled. However, the ALJ’s second decision was based on a finding that a significant number of jobs existed in the national economy that Beltran could perform given her impairments. There were 135 jobs regionally and 1,680 jobs nationally. The ALJ’s second decision became the commissioner’s final decision, and Beltran sought judicial review of that decision. Summary judgment was granted in favor of the commissioner. Beltran appealed.
