JONES v. SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION
MEMORANDUM OPINION accompanying final order issued separately this day. Signed by Judge James E. Boasberg on 9/19/12.(ah)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Civil Action No. 11-1459 (JEB)
This matter, brought under the Social Security Act, is before the Court on the Defendant
Commissioner’s Motion for Judgment of Affirmance [Dkt. # 11]. On July 19, 2012, plaintiff
was advised to respond to the motion by August 31, 2012, and was warned that his failure to
respond could result in the Court’s treating the motion as conceded and summarily dismissing
the case. See Order (July 19, 2012). Plaintiff has not filed a response to defendant’s dispositive
motion and has not sought additional time to do so. The Court therefore will grant defendant’s
motion for judgment of affirmance as conceded and will dismiss the case. See Twelve John Does
v. District of Columbia, 117 F.3d 571, 577 (D.C. Cir. 1997) (“Where the district court relies on
the absence of a response as a basis for treating a motion as conceded, [the District of Columbia
Circuit] honor[s] its enforcement” of the local rule.); accord Fox v. Am. Airlines, Inc., 389 F.3d
1291, 1294-95 (D.C. Cir. 2004); FDIC v. Bender, 127 F.3d 58, 67-68 (D.C. Cir. 1997). A
separate Order accompanies this Memorandum Opinion.
