MEMORANDUM OPINION AND RECOMMENDATION OF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE signed by MAG/JUDGE L. PATRICK AULD on 2/10/2014, that Defendant's decision finding no disability be vacated and that the matter be remanded under sentence four of 42 U.S.C. ยง 405(g), for further administrative proceedings: 1) to consider whether Plaintiff's financial constraints explained his failure to follow recommended treatment and testing for Parkinson's disease (thereby altering the assessment of the credibility of his symptom reporting, the formulation of his RFC, and the step five determination); 2) to reevaluate (also in connection with Plaintiff's RFC and the related ruling at step five) the opinions of Drs. Ferguson and Braunstein regarding matters short of the ultimate issue of disability, as well as to identify the weight given to such opinions and the rationale for that weighting; and 3) to address Listing 11.06. As a result, Defendant's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings (Docket Entry 19) should be denied and Plaintiff's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings (Docket Entry 17) should be granted in part and denied in part, in that the Court should remand the case, but should not order an award of benefits. (Lloyd, Donna)
