IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
ALTHEDA E. FRANKLIN and NYICO R.
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE,
Commissioner of Social Security,
CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:10-CV-166(MTT)
This matter is before the Court on the Recommendation of United States Magistrate
Judge Thomas Q. Langstaff. (Doc. 18). The Magistrate Judge recommends affirming the
decision of the Commissioner because the Commissioner’s decision was supported by
substantial evidence and it was reached through a proper application of the legal
standards. The Plaintiffs have filed an objection to the Recommendation (Doc. 20), and the
Defendants have filed a response thereto. The arguments raised in the Plaintiffs’ objection
are substantively similar to those raised in their initial and reply briefs before the Magistrate
Judge. The Court has thoroughly considered the Plaintiffs’ objection and has made a de
novo determination of the portions of the Recommendation to which the Plaintiffs object.
The Court accepts and adopts the findings, conclusions, and recommendations
of the Magistrate Judge. The Recommendation is adopted and made the order of this
Court. The decision of the Commissioner is AFFIRMED.
SO ORDERED, this 4th day of January, 2012.
S/ Marc T. Treadwell
