Civil Action No. 16-13004
Honorable Victoria A. Roberts
Magistrate Judge Majzoub
Commission of Social Security,
ORDER REGARDING CONSENT FOR SOCIAL SECURITY CASES
In the interest of the prompt and efficient adjudication of this case, it is ordered that the
parties discuss whether they are willing to consent, under 28 U.S.C. § 636(c), to have a
Magistrate Judge conduct all further proceedings.
If both parties consent to proceed before the Magistrate Judge, counsel for Defendant
must, within two weeks of the date of this order, file a fully executed Notice, Consent and
Reference of a Civil Action to a Magistrate Judge form, a copy of which is attached to this order
(and is also available in fillable format at:
https://www.mied.uscourts.gov/PDFFIles/Notice_Consent_Ref_MJ_RE.pdf ). If the form is
submitted, the Court will enter a reference order and all further proceedings will be conducted
before the Magistrate Judge. Any appeal of the Magistrate Judge’s decision would be taken
directly to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
If either party does not consent, the parties must file a joint notice, within two weeks of
the date of this order, advising the Court that the parties do not consent. Do not disclose the
identity of the party or parties who do not consent.
The parties are free to withhold consent without negative consequences.
IT IS ORDERED.
