Jefferson v. Social Security, Commissioner of
ORDER Adopting 24 Report and Recommendation. Signed by District Judge Terrence G. Berg. (AChu)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Case No. 16-10167
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
HON. TERRENCE G. BERG
HON. MONA K. MAJZOUB
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (DKT. 24)
This matter is before the Court on Magistrate Judge Mona K. Majzoub’s
January 9, 2017 Report and Recommendation (Dkt. 24), recommending that
Plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment be granted, that Defendant’s motion for
summary judgment be denied, and that this matter be remanded for further
discussion of Plaintiff’s credibility and further analysis of her medical record.
The Court has reviewed the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation,
and finds that it is well-reasoned and supported by the applicable law. The law
provides that either party may serve and file written objections “[w]ithin fourteen
days after being served with a copy” of the report and recommendations.
28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). The district court will make a “de novo determination of those
portions of the report . . . to which objection is made.” Id. Where, as here, neither
party objects to the report, the district court is not obligated to independently
review the record. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149-52 (1985). The Court will,
therefore, accept the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation of January 9,
2017, as this Court’s findings of fact and conclusions of law.
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Majzoub’s
Report and Recommendation of January 9, 2017 (Dkt. 24) is ACCEPTED and
ADOPTED. It is FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff’s motion for summary
judgment (Dkt. 15) is GRANTED, Defendant’s motion for summary judgment (Dkt.
19) is DENIED, and that this matter is REMANDED for further discussion of
Plaintiff’s credibility and further analysis of her medical record and complaints, as
discussed in the Report and Recommendation.
