IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CASE NO.: 3:12CV00034 BD
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, Commissioner,
Social Security Administration
Plaintiff Mary Mills filed this action on February 2, 2012. (docket entry #2) The
Commissioner answered the complaint on April 22, 2012 and filed an administrative
transcript on April 23, 2012. (#7 and #9)
On June 5, 2012, Plaintiff’s counsel requested, and the Court granted, a stay of the
briefing schedule because the administrative transcript was incomplete. (#11 and #12)
On June 19, 2012, the Commissioner agreed that the transcript was incomplete and stated
that he would direct his case preparation branch to expeditiously prepare and file the
supplemental transcript. (#13) Over a month has passed, and there is no notice of the
filing of a supplemental transcript.1 It appears the only thing missing from the filed
transcript was medical exhibits referenced in the administrative decision. (#11)
More than fifty days have passed since Plaintiff put the Commissioner on notice
that the transcript was incomplete.
The Commissioner has twenty-one (21) days from the entry of this Order to file a
complete, supplemental transcript. In the absence of a complete, supplemental transcript,
the Court will remand this case to the Commissioner.
DATED this 27th day of July, 2012.
