UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
DEBORAH J. WILLIAMS,
CASE NO. 13-CV-14941
HONORABLE GEORGE CARAM STEEH
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
ORDER ACCEPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND
RECOMMENDATION (DOC. #15) GRANTING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION
FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (DOC. #11), DENYING DEFENDANT’S MOTION
FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (DOC. #14) AND REMANDING ACTION
Before the court are the parties’ cross-motions for summary judgment, which were
referred to the magistrate judge for a report and recommendation. On February 27, 2015,
Magistrate Judge Mona Majzoub issued her report, recommending that the court grant
plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment, deny the defendant’s motion for summary
judgment, and remand the matter for proper application of the treating-physician rule.
The magistrate judge specifically stated that any objections to her report were to be
filed within 14 days of service, and that failure to file such objections constituted a waiver
of any further right to appeal. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 155 (1985). No such
objections were filed by either party.
The court has reviewed the record and briefing in this matter, as well as the
magistrate judge’s report and recommendation. Finding that report and recommendation
to be well-reasoned, the court hereby adopts the result recommended therein. Accordingly,
plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment is hereby GRANTED. Defendant’s motion for
summary judgment is DENIED, and this cause of action is REMANDED to the
Commissioner of Social Security as stated in the report and recommendation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: March 20, 2015
