UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
RONALD R. GUTZEIT,
CASE NO. 16-CV-11650
HON. GEORGE CARAM STEEH
ORDER ACCEPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND
RECOMMENDATION (DOC. 23), GRANTING IN PART PLAINTIFF’S
MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (Doc. 17) TO THE EXTENT HE
SEEKS REMAND AND DENIED IN PART TO THE EXTENT HE SEEKS
AN AWARD OF BENEFITS, and DENYING DEFENDANT’S
MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (DOC. 22)
Plaintiff Ronald Gutzeit brought this action challenging defendant
Commissioner of Social Security’s denial of his claim for social security
Before the court are the parties’ cross-motions for
summary judgment, which were referred to the magistrate judge for a report
and recommendation. On August 21, 2017, Magistrate Judge Stepanie
Dawkins Davis issued her report, recommending that defendant’s motion be
denied, and plaintiff’s motion be granted in part to the extent he seeks
remand, and denied in part to the extent he seeks an award of benefits.
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
and the time period for doing so has expired.
The court has reviewed the record and briefing in this matter, as well as
the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation, and adopts the result
recommended therein. Accordingly, plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment
(Doc. 17) is GRANTED IN PART to the extent he seeks remand and is
DENIED IN PART to the extent he seeks an award of benefits, and
defendant’s motion for summary judgment (Doc. 22) is DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that this matter is REMANDED for further
proceedings consistent with the Report and Recommendation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
