7th Circuit Court of Appeals
Case Name: Gerald Peeters v. Andrew M. Saul
Case No.: 19-2530
Officials: SYKES, Chief Judge, and BAUER and ST. EVE, Circuit Judges.
Focus: ALJ Error – Disability Benefits
Gerald Peeters appeals the denial of his claim for disability insurance benefits. In 2016 and 2018, the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) determined Peeters was not disabled under the relevant regulations. Peeters sought relief in the district court, which reviewed the ALJ’s opinion and found that the decision was supported by substantial evidence. Peeters contests the ALJ’s weight and application of the opinions given by Dr. Sandra King and state agency psychologists. Because we find the ALJ’s opinion was supported by substantial evidence, we affirm.
