UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION Helena Pugh, Plaintiff, v. Case No. 16-12057 Commissioner of Social Security, Honorable Sean F. Cox Defendant. ______________________________/ ORDER ADOPTING 3/27/17 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION Plaintiff filed this action under 42 U.S.C. § 405(g), challenging a final decision of the Commissioner of Social Security denying her application for Supplemental Security Income under the Social Security Act. The matter was referred to Magistrate Judge David Grand for determination of all non-dispositive motions pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Report and Recommendation pursuant to § 636(b)(1)(B) and (C). Thereafter, the parties filed motions for summary judgment. On March 27, 2017, Magistrate Judge Grand issued a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) (Docket Entry No. 19) wherein he recommends that: 1) the Commissioner’s motion be granted; and 2) Plaintiff’s motion be denied. Pursuant to FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b), a party objecting to the recommended disposition of a matter by a Magistrate Judge must filed objections to the R&R within fourteen (14) days after being served with a copy of the R&R. “The district judge to whom the case is assigned shall 1 make a de novo determination upon the record, or after additional evidence, of any portion of the magistrate judge’s disposition to which specific written objection has been made.” Id. The time for filing objections to the R&R has expired and the docket reflects that neither party has filed objections to the R&R. The Court hereby ADOPTS the March 27, 2017 R&R. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that: 1) the Commissioner’s motion is GRANTED; 2) Plaintiff’s motion is DENIED; and 3) the Commissioner’s decision is AFFIRMED. IT IS SO ORDERED. s/Sean F. Cox Sean F. Cox United States District Judge Dated: April 17, 2017 I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was served upon counsel of record on April 17, 2017, by electronic and/or ordinary mail. s/Jennifer McCoy Case Manager 2
