-DAS Isom v. Social Security, Commissioner of Doc. 16 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION WILLIS ISOM, Plaintiff, v. COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant. ___________________________________________/ ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND DISMISSING THE PLAINTIFF'S COMPLAINT Presently before the Court is the report issued on September 15, 2010 by Magistrate Judge Donald A. Scheer pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 636(b). Judge Scheer found substantial evidence in the record that the claimant retained residual functional capacity for a limited range of light work. As a result, he recommended that this Court deny the plaintiff's motion for summary judgment, grant the defendant's motion for summary judgment, and dismiss the plaintiff's complaint. Although the magistrate judge's report explicitly stated that the parties to this action may object to and seek review of the recommendation within ten days of service of the report, no objections have been filed. The parties' failure to file objections to the report and recommendation waives any further right to appeal. Smith v. Detroit Federation of Teachers Local 231, 829 F.2d 1370, 1373 (6th Cir. 1987). Likewise, the failure to object to the magistrate judge's report releases the Court from its duty to independently review the motion. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). However, the Court agrees with the findings and conclusions of the Magistrate Judge. Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation [dkt #15] is ADOPTED. Case Number 10-10241 Honorable David M. Lawson Magistrate Judge Donald A. Scheer Dockets.Justia.com It is further ORDERED that the defendant's motion for summary judgment [dkt #14] is GRANTED. It is further ORDERED that the plaintiff's motion for summary judgment [dkt #13] is DENIED. It is further ORDERED that the findings of the Commissioner are AFFIRMED. It is further ORDERED that the plaintiff's complaint is DISMISSED. s/David M. Lawson DAVID M. LAWSON United States District Judge Dated: October 6, 2010 PROOF OF SERVICE The undersigned certifies that a copy of the foregoing order was served upon each attorney or party of record herein by electronic means or first class U.S. mail on October 6, 2010. s/Teresa Scott-Feijoo TERESA SCOTT-FEIJOO -2-
