Evidence: The ALJ may not disregard uncontradicted medical evidence. He may reject uncontradicted medical evidence, but only if he states a sufficient basis for doing so. The COA remanded for further findings as to why the ALJ rejected certain uncontradicted evidence, and affirmed where there was some evidence to support the ALJ’s findings.
