UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION Steven Archie Reynolds, Plaintiff, v. Case No. 10-11044 Honorable Sean F. Cox Commissioners of Social Security, Defendant. ______________________________/ ORDER ACCEPTING AND ADOPTING REPORT & RECOMMENDATION Plaintiff brought this action seeking judicial review of the Commissioner’s unfavorable decision disallowing benefits. The matter was referred to Magistrate Judge Michael Hluchaniuk for determination of all non-dispositive motions pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Report and Recommendation pursuant to § 636(b)(1)(B) and (C). Thereafter, the parties filed crossmotions for summary judgment. In a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) issued on August 19, 2011, Magistrate Judge Hluchaniuk recommended that this Court grant the Commissioner’s Motion for Summary Judgment and deny Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment. Pursuant to FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b), a party objecting to the recommended disposition of a matter by a Magistrate Judge must filed objections to the R&R within fourteen (14) days after being served with a copy of the R&R. “The district judge to whom the case is assigned shall make a de novo determination upon the record, or after additional evidence, of any portion of the 1 magistrate judge’s disposition to which specific written objection has been made.” Id. The time for filing objections to the R&R has expired and the docket reflects that neither party has filed objections to the R&R. The Court hereby ADOPTS the August 19, 2011 R&R. IT IS ORDERED that the Commissioner’s Motion for Summary Judgment is GRANTED and Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment is DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED. S/Sean F. Cox Sean F. Cox United States District Judge Dated: September 6, 2011 I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was served upon counsel of record on September 6, 2011, by electronic and/or ordinary mail.
