Barnhart v. Walton, 535 U.S. 212 (2002).
Should an individual with an impairment that has lasted or is expected to last for at least 12 months be entitled to disability benefits, even if the individual attempted to work during the 12 months? The Epilepsy Foundation and other disability rights organizations argue "yes" in this Amicus Brief.

Bowen v. Yuckert, 482 U.S. 137 (1987).
Is denial of disability benefits because an applicant's impairment is "not severe," regardless of the applicant's age, work experience, or education, improper? The Epilepsy Foundation and other disability rights organizations argue "yes," explaining that this threshold severity regulation exceeds the de minimis screening (screening out frivolous claims) permitted under the Social Security Act.
