A: This is a question of credibility for the judge and it sounds like he ruled in your favor. You cannot pursue a separate claim against the defense lawyer or doctor for the evidence presented. Hopefully the judge outlined these issues in his decision which will then be part of the records reviewed in any future petition regarding your entitlement to benefits.
