EARL D. JONES,
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE,
Commissioner of Social Security,
Cause No. 4:12CV325 RWS
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before me on Earl D. Jone’s appeal from an adverse ruling of the
Social Security Administration. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), this matter was referred
to United States Magistrate Judge Shirley Padmore Mensah, who filed her Report and
Recommendation on December 14, 2012. Judge Mensah recommended that the
Commissioner’s decision to deny benefits be affirmed. Judge Mensah found that the
Administrative Law Judge’s determination that Plaintiff was not entitled to benefits was
supported by substantial evidence in the record.
Any objections to Judge Mensah’s Report and Recommendation had to be filed by
December 31, 2012. Neither of the parties has filed an objection as of today’s date.
After careful consideration, I will adopt and sustain the thorough reasoning of
Judge Mensah set forth in support of her recommended ruling and will affirm the decision
of the Commissioner.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation of the United
States Magistrate Judge Mensah [#17] is SUSTAINED, ADOPTED AND
INCORPORATED herein. The Commissioner of Social Security’s decision to deny
Disability Insurance Benefits and Supplemental Security Income benefits to Plaintiff is
