An ALJ decision in a court remand may be:
Fully favorable to the claimant;
Partially favorable to the claimant; or
Unfavorable to the claimant.
Generally, an ALJ may not dismiss a court remand case. Except in certain limited situations,
(for example, the claimant is deceased in a title XVI only claim and there is no eligible
spouse or the claimant requests that the hearing request be dismissed) if the ALJ
cannot hold a hearing, the ALJ must issue a decision on the record.
