N.D. OF ALABAMA
The magistrate judge filed his report and recommendation on January 5, 2015 (doc. 5),
recommending that the court grant the pro se plaintiff’s motion to proceed in forma pauperis (doc.
2); he also recommends dismissing the action for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be
granted because the representative payee provisions of the Social Security Act provides no private
federal cause of action and because Davis has failed to allege exhaustion of all administrative
remedies, providing no final agency determination for this court to review. No party has filed any
Having now carefully considered de novo all the materials in the court file, including the
report and recommendation, the court ADOPTS the magistrate judge’s report and ACCEPTS his
recommendation that the court GRANT the motion to proceed in forma pauperis (doc. 2) and
DISMISS WITHOUT PREJUDICE this action for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be
granted for the reasons explained above.
The court will enter an Order in conformity with this Memorandum Opinion.
DONE and ORDERED this 26th day of January, 2015.
