APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF PUERTO RICO
Raymond Rivera Esteves and Juan A. Hernandez Rivera on brief for appellant.
Daniel F. Lopez Romo, United States Attorney, Jose Vazquez Garcia, Assistant United States Attorney, and Amy S. Knopf, Assistant Regional Counsel, Department of Health and Human Services, on brief for appellee.
Before Selya, Cyr and Boudin, Circuit Judges.
We have carefully reviewed the record and find that substantial evidence supports the finding that the claimant retained the physical and mental capacity to perform the simple, routine, light, unskilled jobs as determined by the Secretary. We reject the claimant's attacks on the Secretary's assessment of the vocational expert's testimony, and conclude that the Secretary's decision to deny disability benefits is reasonably and adequately supported by the record as a whole. We affirm the judgment of the district court substantially for the reasons stated in the magistrate-judge's report and recommendation as adopted by the district court.
