UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case No. 16-10033
Honorable Nancy G. Edmunds
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
OPINION AND ORDER ACCEPTING AND ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 
Plaintiff Doris Truitt seeks review of Defendant Commissioner of Social Security's
determination that she is not entitled to social security benefits. The Court referred the
matter to Magistrate Judge Mona Majzoub, and on January 9, 2017, the Magistrate Judge
issued a Report and Recommendation (R&R) that the Court reverse Defendant's decision
and remand it for further proceedings. Although the Magistrate Judge directed the parties
to file any objections to the R&R's findings within fourteen days of service, no objections
have been filed thus far. The failure to file objections to the R&R waives any further right
to appeal. Howard v. Sec'y of Health and Human Servs., 932 F.2d 505, 508 (6th Cir.
2001); Smith v. Detroit Fed'n of Teachers Local 231, 829 F.2d 1370, 1373 (6th Cir. 1987).
Moreover, the failure to object to the R&R releases the Court from its duty to review the
matter independently. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). Nonetheless, the Court
agrees with the Magistrate Judge's analysis and recommendation. The Court therefore
ACCEPTS AND ADOPTS the R&R.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment  is
GRANTED; Defendant's motion for summary judgment  is DENIED; Defendant's
decision is REVERSED; and this matter is REMANDED for further proceedings consistent
with the R&R.
