869 F2d 1492 Piotter v. Secretary of Health and Human Services

869 F.2d 1492

Gerald F. PIOTTER, Plaintiff-Appellant,
v.
SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, Defendant-Appellee.

No. 88-1231.

United States Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit.

Feb. 17, 1989.

Unpublished Disposition
NOTICE: Sixth Circuit Rule 24(c) states that citation of unpublished dispositions is disfavored except for establishing res judicata, estoppel, or the law of the case and requires service of copies of cited unpublished dispositions of the Sixth Circuit.

Before RALPH B. GUY, Jr., and ALAN E. NORRIS, Circuit Judges, and ROBERT HOLMES BELL, District Judge.*

PER CURIAM.

1

Plaintiff, Gerald F. Piotter, appeals from an order of the district court which affirmed the denial of disability benefits.

2

Having carefully considered the record on appeal and the briefs of the parties, we are unable to say that the decision of the Appeals Council is not supported by substantial evidence. Accordingly, the district court did not err in granting summary judgment to the Secretary, and the judgment of the district court is therefore AFFIRMED upon the reasoning set forth in the Report and Recommendation of the magistrate, dated October 30, 1987.
