UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
NANCY A. BERRYHILL,
Acting Commissioner of Social
Case No. CV 15-7472-SP
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND
On March 31, 2017, the assigned magistrate judge issued a Report and
19 Recommendation, recommending that the decision of the Commissioner of the
20 Social Security Administration denying benefits to plaintiff be reversed, and that
21 the case be remanded to the Commissioner. The parties were given until April 14,
22 2017 to file objections to the Report and Recommendation, but neither did so.
Meanwhile, on April 2, 2017, plaintiff filed a statement of consent to have
24 the magistrate judge conduct all proceedings in this case. Defendant had
25 previously filed her statement of consent (much earlier, on November 19, 2015).
26 Although plaintiff gave consent late in the case, the Local Rules of this court
27 permit the parties to consent “at any time prior to the entry of judgment.” L.R. 7328 3. Consequently, on April 3, 2017, the case was reassigned to the magistrate judge
1 for all further proceedings and final disposition.
As no objections to the Report and Recommendation were filed within the
3 time permitted, and as nothing else has caused the court to reconsider its previous
4 findings, the court adopts and incorporates by reference the findings in the Report
5 and Recommendation.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Judgment be entered reversing the
7 decision of the Commissioner denying benefits, and remanding this action for
8 further administrative proceedings consistent with the Report and
9 Recommendation as incorporated into this Memorandum Opinion and Order.
12 Dated: April 17, 2017
