Virginia, If a judge has in his hands tax returns that show a person committed fraud by earning way more than SSDI allows, is he obligated by law to turn this person in himself? While this person was married, her SSDI didn't decrease, even tho her husband made over 40,000 a year. Lawyer said IRS must have been sleeping when going over these peoples tax returns. (filed together) She worked and earned over 50,000 in a matter of months, was also paid under the table at another job working over 40 hours a week, and the judge was handed proof of this. No consequences what so ever.
