The matter was referred to Magistrate Michael Hluchaniuk, who issued a twenty-nine-page Report and Recommendation on January 15, 2010, recommending that defendant Commissioner's motion be granted, that Johnson's motion be denied, and that Johnson's claims be dismissed on concluding there is substantial evidence in the record to support the denial of benefits.
