I am very grateful to NOSSCR and all of the attendees at my presentation at the Fall 2018 NOSSCR conference.

The question presented in the brief of the Petitioner, Michael J. Biestek, is

Whether a vocational expert’s testimony can constitute substantial evidence of “other work,” 20 C.F.R. § 404.1520(a)(4)(v), available to an applicant for social security benefits on the basis of a disability, when the expert fails upon the applicant’s request to provide the underlying data on which that testimony is premised.

The Supreme Court docket and links to the briefs in the Biestek case are available at the ScotusBlog.

My treatise, cited in the NADR brief, is the Social Security Disability Advocate’s Handbook.  It contains additional strategies and more detail than Bob Angermeier and I covered at the Thursday, October 18 NOSSCR conference session.  You can buy it online from James Publishing.
