ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
This matter is before the Court on the report and recommendation of
Amanda Arnold Sansone, United States Magistrate Judge, entered on June 29,
2022. (Doc. 17). Judge Sansone recommends that “Defendant’s Opposed Motion for
Entry of Judgment with Remand” (Doc. 15) be granted in part and the case be
remanded with instructions to conduct a rehearing on certain issues. No objections
to the report and recommendation were filed, and the time for filing objections has
After conducting a careful and complete review of the findings and
recommendations, a district judge may accept, reject, or modify the magistrate
judge’s report and recommendation. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Camby v. Davis, 718
F.2d 198, 199 (4th Cir. 1983); Williams v. Wainwright, 681 F.2d 732 (11th Cir.
1982). A district court must “make a de novo determination of those portions of the
Page 1 of 3
[report and recommendation] to which an objection is made.” 28 U.S.C. §
636(b)(1)(C). When no objection is filed, a court reviews the report and
recommendation for clear error. Macort v. Prem, Inc., 208 F. App’x 781, 784 (11th
Cir. 2006); Nettles v. Wainwright, 677 F.2d 404, 409 (5th Cir. 1982).
Upon consideration of the record, including Judge Sansone’s report and
recommendation, the Court adopts the report and recommendation. The Court
agrees with Judge Sansone’s detailed and well-reasoned findings and conclusions.

ORDERED, ADJUDGED, and DECREED:

15) is GRANTED IN PART.
3. This matter is REMANDED with instructions to conduct a rehearing for
