MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. William Ditter, Jr., Sr. J
AND NOW, this 1st day of September, 2011, upon consideration of the brief in support of request for review filed by plaintiff (Doc. No. 14), defendant's response and plaintiff's reply thereto (Doc.
