Reed v. Social Security, Commissioner of
ORDER ADOPTING 17 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND GRANTING DEFENDANTS 16 MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT AND DENYING PLAINTIFFS 14 MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT AND DISMISSING CASE. Signed by District Judge Avern Cohn. (SSro)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case No. 11-10662
HON. AVERN COHN
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (Doc. 17)
GRANTING DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (Doc. 16)
DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (Doc. 14)
This is a social security case. Plaintiff Vicki Reed appeals from the final
determination of the Commissioner of Social Security (Commissioner) that she is not
disabled and therefore not entitled to disability insurance benefits. The matter was
referred to a magistrate judge for all pretrial proceedings. Plaintiff, proceeding pro se,
and the Commissioner filed cross motions for summary judgment.
On November 27, 2012, the magistrate judge issued a report and
recommendation (MJRR) recommending that the Commissioner’s motion be granted,
that plaintiff’s motion be denied, and the case be dismissed.
Neither party has filed objections to the MJRR and the time for filing objections
has passed. The 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 motions. Thomas v.
Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). However, the Court has reviewed the MJRR and agrees
with the magistrate judge’s recommendations. Accordingly, the findings and
conclusions of the magistrate judge are ADOPTED as the findings and conclusions of
the Court. The Commissioner’s motion for summary judgment is GRANTED. Plaintiff’s
motion for summary judgment is DENIED. This case is DISMISSED.
