UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA GAINESVILLE DIVISION DANTRILLE STARKE, PLAINTIFF, -vs- Case No. 1:15-cv-00228-WTH-GRJ CAROLYN W COLVIN, DEFENDANT. ______________________________/ ORDER This cause comes on for consideration upon the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation dated November 21, 2016. (ECF No. 22). The parties have been furnished a copy of the Report and Recommendation and have been afforded an opportunity to file objections pursuant to Title 28, United States Code, Section 636(b)(1). Plaintiff has filed objections at ECF No. 23. I have made a de novo review based on those objections. Having considered the Report and Recommendation, and the timely filed objections, I have determined that the Report and Recommendation should be adopted. First, the Court agrees with the Magistrate Judge that because the Administrative Law Judge found no disability for the period between June 2008 and October 2012, no medical expert was required under SSR 83-20 to determine if the onset date might have been earlier than the first recorded medical exam. Second, the Court agrees with the Magistrate Judge that the Administrative Law Judge gave full and     Page 2 of 2  specific reasons for discounting the credibility of the plaintiff regarding the severity of KBJ’s limitations. Finally, the Court agrees that the Administrative Law Judge properly considered and explained the impact of the two Batelle Developmental Inventory tests in his analysis. Accordingly, the Report and Recommendation is adopted and incorporated herein by reference. The decision of the Commissioner, denying benefits, is affirmed. The Clerk is directed to close the file. IT IS SO ORDERED. DONE and ORDERED at Gainesville, Florida this 6th day of March, 2017.         Case No: 1:15‐cv‐00228‐WTH‐GRJ
