ORDER OF REMAND AND JUDGMENT - that the above-captioned case is REVERSED and REMANDED for further administrative proceedings pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). On remand, the Appeals Council will direct an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) as follows. The ALJ will reevaluate whether Plaintiff's medically determinable impairments meet or equal the requirements of any listing at step 3 of the sequential evaluation process, including Listing 12.05C, with further discussion of whether Plaintiff has deficits in adaptive functioning. In so doing, the ALJ will consult an appropriate medical expert and offer Plaintiff the opportunity to address the medical expert's opinion. If warranted, the ALJ will reevaluate Plaintiff's maximum residual functional capacity pursuant to Social Security Ruling 96-8p; obtain supplemental vocational expert evidence at step 4; and, if necessary proceed to step 5 of the sequential evaluation process. The ALJ will consider any new evidence submitted and issue a new decision. Upon proper presentation to this Court, Plaintiff will be entitled to reasonable attorney fees and costs pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. § 2412(d). IT IS FURTHER ORDERED THAT JUDGMENT is entered for Plaintiff, and this case is closed. Signed by Senior Judge James A Teilborg on 10/14/2015. (KMG)
