Ormson Initiative Recognized in Federal Report

“Among cases filed in 2008 in the District of Maryland… data that the agency provided to us show that claimants won remand in 70% of appeals. To reduce this rate, [Craig] formed a team of colleagues to focus on District of Maryland litigation… Among those appeals filed just two years later, in 2010, the District of Maryland remand rate had fallen to 38%, and for cases filed between 2011 and 2014, it has stayed between 34 and 42%.”
