Stanley v. Astrue
United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit
298 Fed. Appx. 537 (2008)
Attorney James W. Stanely, Jr. (plaintiff) was suspended from representing claimants before the Social Security Administration for five years. The suspension followed a hearing before an administrative-law judge (ALJ) who found that Stanley had misled his client regarding her benefits and rights, collected and retained a fee in excess of the administration’s authorized fee, and made false or misleading statements to the administration regarding the matter. The ALJ’s decision was affirmed by the appeals council, and Stanley sought judicial review of the suspension pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). The district court dismissed Stanley’s action because judicial review under § 405(g) is not available to attorneys. Stanley appealed.
