Harris v Commissioner of Social Security
ORDER (1) Granting Defendant's 24 Motion for Summary Judgment and (2) Denying Plaintiff's 21 Motion for Summary Judgment. Signed by District Judge Matthew F. Leitman. (HMon)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
ANITA ANNE HARRIS,
Case No. 15-cv-13706
Hon. Matthew F. Leitman
ORDER (1) GRANTING DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY
JUDGMENT (ECF # 24) AND (2) DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR
SUMMARY JUDGMENT (ECF #21)
In this action, Plaintiff Anita Anne Harris (“Plaintiff”) challenges the denial
of her application for disability insurance benefits. (See Compl., ECF #1.) Plaintiff
and the Commissioner of Social Security (“Defendant”) have now filed crossmotions for summary judgment. (See ECF ## 21, 24.)
On January 20, 2017 the assigned Magistrate Judge issued a Report and
Recommendation recommending that the Court grant Defendant’s motion and
deny Plaintiff’s motion (the “R&R”). (See ECF #26.) At the conclusion of the
R&R, the Magistrate Judge informed the parties that if they wanted to seek review
of her recommendation, they needed to file specific objections with the Court
within fourteen days. (See id. at 23-24, Pg. ID 971-72.)
Plaintiff has not filed any objections to the R&R.
The failure to file
objections to an R&R waives any further right to appeal. See Howard v. Sec'y of
Health and Human Servs., 932 F.2d 505 (6th Cir. 1991); Smith v. Detroit Fed'n of
Teachers Local 231, 829 F.2d 1370, 1373 (6th Cir. 1987). Likewise, the failure to
object to an R&R releases the Court from its duty to independently review the
matter. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985).
Accordingly, because Plaintiff has failed to file any objections to the R&R,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation to grant
Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment is ADOPTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that (1) Defendant's Motion for Summary
Judgment (ECF #24) is GRANTED and (2) Plaintiff's Motion for Summary
Judgment (ECF #21) is DENIED.
