Does anyone know the percentage of minorities denied verses approved by Judge Pflugrath? He denied my son who has been diagnosed by several professionals from Neurologist to psychologist as having Autism, Schizophrenia, and a few more issues. My son is in his 20's and struggles to focus and keep a job. He really is in need of help. This Judge is heartless, but we will not give up.

Judge Dodson did not take into full consideration my doctor Residual functional capacity. Also he did not fully state what was said by the Vocational witness statement
