How do I file a complaint against a social security judge named Ronald XXXXXXX?
First of all, I would like to thank you for your answer.
Secondly, the answer is a bit boilerplate because as you may know, the administrative law judges belong to a powerful union. It is near impossible for an ALJ to be fired; unless they make a very bad decision and it becomes public.
I feel strongly that the ALJ had a bias in his answer though; filing a complaint against a federal ALJ will mean nothing in CT. But I'll file a complaint... how would I go about filing a complaint against a federally-employed administrative law judge (ALJ)?
I know how to complain to the Appeals Council in Falls Church, but there must be a federal level organization that can punish an administrative law judge.
Thanks for the tip for dealing with the appeals process; i can use the judge's bias as part of my overall brief.
I don't have an attorney for the Appeals Council right now; I've contacted attorneys but none want to take my case.
Do you know of any websites or places where I can find a sample brief to file the appeal on my own?
Thank you again for your 2 answers.
I see you're aware of Schnaufer. Very good!
and I found the following information about ALJs on a legal site called Avvo. That is not me posting the question.
I will rate your answer(s) in a moment.
