The Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare denied disability insurance benefits under the Social Security Act to the plaintiff-appellant, Robert W. Lucas. The District Court, after a hearing in open court which included the arguments of counsel, held that there is substantial evidence in the record to support the action of the Secretary.
