Stafford v. Social Security Administration
ORDER declining to adopt 5 Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition; and referring the case back to Judge Volpe for further proceedings. Signed by Judge Kristine G. Baker on 8/1/2022. (jbh)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
ADAM D. STAFFORD
Case No. 4:20-cv-01316-KGB-JJV
SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION
The Court has reviewed the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition submitted
by United States Magistrate Judge Joe J. Volpe recommending that the Court dismiss the case
without prejudice because plaintiff Adam Stafford had not filed proof of service or complied with
the Court’s Order to provide proof of service on defendant Social Security Administration (Dkt.
No. 5, at 1). The Court observes that plaintiff Adam Stafford has now served the complaint on the
Social Security Administration (Dkt. No. 6). The Social Security Administration has answered
the complaint and has not moved to dismiss the case for lack of service (Dkt. No. 8). Accordingly,
the Court declines to adopt the Proposed Findings and Recommended Disposition (Dkt. No. 5).
The Court refers the case back to Judge Volpe for further proceedings.
It is so ordered this the 1st day of August, 2022.
