ORDER ACCEPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
This matter is before the Court on the Complaint filed by Plaintiff Tyrian C.
Security (“Commissioner”) denying her claim for disability insurance benefits. [DE 1]. Plaintiff
filed a Fact and Law Summary [DE 19], and the Commissioner filed a Fact and Law Summary
[DE 22]. This matter was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Regina S. Edwards
and recommendation. [DE 2]. Judge Edwards entered her Report and
Recommendation [DE 23] on January 3, 2023, recommending that the final decision of the
Commissioner be affirmed. The time for objections to the magistrate judge’s recommendation
expired on January 17, 2022. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2). Plaintiff
did not file objections and the time for doing so has passed. This matter is now ripe for
A district court may refer a motion to a magistrate judge for the preparation of a report
and recommendation. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(1). “A magistrate judge
must promptly conduct the required proceedings . . . [and] enter a recommended disposition,
including, if appropriate, proposed findings of fact.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(1). This Court must
“determine de novo any part of the magistrate judge's disposition that has been properly
objected to.” 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3). The Court need not review under

other standard those aspects of the report and recommendation to which no specific objection is
made and may adopt the findings and rulings of the magistrate judge to which no specific objection
is filed Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 150, 155 (1985).
Here, because no party has objected to the Report and Recommendation, the Court may
accept it without review. See Thomas, 474 U.S. at 150, 155. Nevertheless, the Court has conducted
its own review of the record and finds no error in the magistrate judge’s findings and conclusions.
Accordingly, and the Court being otherwise sufficiently advised, IT ORDERED as follows:
The Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate, [DE 23], is
ACCEPTED in whole and INCORPORATED by reference.
A separate judgment shall issue this date.
