On remand, the Administrative Law Judge shall update the medical record, obtain vocational expert testimony, offer the claimant the opportunity for a new hearing, and issue a new decision.
The Court recommends that United States District Judge Robert S. Lasnik immediately approve this Report and Recommendation and order the case REVERSED and REMANDED for further administrative proceedings pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). A proposed order accompanies this Report and Recommendation.
