N.D. OF ALABAMA
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
COMMISSIONER, SOCIAL SECURITY
) Case No. 4:14-cv-00893-KOB
On June 11, 2015, the magistrate judge entered his report and recommendation
(doc. 20), recommending that the court affirm the decision of the Commissioner
finding that the claimant is not disabled. On June 25, 2015, the claimant filed
objections (doc. 21), and the Commissioner filed a response to the claimant’s
objections on July 9, 2015 (doc. 22).
The claimant cites five specific objections to the magistrate judge’s report and
recommendation that merely restate the very same issues that she included in her
initial brief and that the magistrate judge thoroughly and correctly addressed in his
report and recommendation. The crux of her objections centers around her mere

disagreement with the magistrate judge’s findings and application of the law. To the
extent that her objections relate to any alleged errors of the magistrate judge in
applying the correct legal standards to the ALJ’s decision, the court OVERRULES
those objections. The court finds that the magistrate judge’s report is well-reasoned
and his recommendations are correct.
After careful de novo consideration of the record in this case, the magistrate
judge’s report and recommendation, the claimant’s objections, and the
Commissioner’s response to those objections, the court hereby ADOPTS the report
of the magistrate judge and ACCEPTS his recommendations that the court affirm the
decision of the Commissioner and deny the Motion to Remand Under Sentence 6.
The court agrees with the magistrate judge that the ALJ applied the correct legal
standards and that substantial evidence supports the ALJ’s finding that the claimant
is not disabled.
The court will enter a separate, Final Order.
DONE and ORDERED this 4th day of September, 2015.
