UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case No. 16-12886
Honorable Nancy G. Edmunds
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
ORDER ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S
JUNE 12, 2017 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 
In a report and recommendation ("R & R") issued on June 12, 2017, Magistrate Judge
Patricia T. Morris recommends that the Court deny Plaintiff Floristean McMillan's motion
for summary judgment and grant the Defendant Commissioner of Social Security's motion
for summary judgment. No objections have been filed to the R & R, and the deadline for
doing so has passed. “[T]he failure to object to the magistrate judge’s report releases the
Court from its duty to independently review the matter.” Hall v. Rawal, No. 09-10933, 2012
WL 3639070, at *1 (E.D. Mich. Aug. 24, 2012) (citation omitted). Nonetheless, having
reviewed the R & R, the parties' underlying summary judgment motions, and the
administrative record, the Court concurs in the Magistrate Judge's analysis, and therefore
ACCEPTS and ADOPTS the Magistrate Judge’s R & R.
Accordingly, it is hereby ordered, for the reasons stated in the R & R, that Plaintiff's
January 15, 2017 motion for summary judgment  is DENIED, that Defendant's February
17, 2017 motion for summary judgment  is GRANTED, and that the administrative
decision denying Plaintiff's claim for benefits is AFFIRMED.
s/Nancy G. Edmunds

Dated: July 17, 2017
I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was served upon counsel of record
on July 17, 2017, by electronic and/or ordinary mail.
