Re: Request for name of administrative law judge assigned to preside over plaintiff's disability hearing
Disposition: Granting defendant's motion to dismiss
- Mootness: The Court holds that plaintiff's request for the name of the judge assigned to her disability hearing is moot. The name of the judge "was released to [plaintiff] before this lawsuit was filed." Plaintiff "cannot show that she has a reasonable expectation of having another hearing before an SSA ALJ." Her "complaint asserts only remote possibilities of appearing before an ALJ in the future." "As a result she cannot meet the capable of evading review exception to the mootness doctrine."
