22-1617 Lisa Austin v. Kilolo Kijakazi

[PUBLISHED] [Shepherd, Author, with Gruender and Erickson, Circuit Judges] Civil case - Social Security. The ALJ did not improperly evaluate the medical evidence in reaching the decision to deny benefits as the ALJ adequately evaluated the persuasiveness of the doctor's opinion and had sufficient grounds to conclude the opinion was unpersuasive; the ALJ also properly evaluated the persuasiveness of a second doctor's opinion; substantial evidence supported the ALJ's residual functional capacity assessment.
