NANCY A. BERRYHILL, Acting
Commissioner of Social Security,
United States Magistrate Judge Jeremiah C. Lynch entered his Findings and
Recommendations in this case on September 28, 201 7, recommending that the
Commissioner of Social Security's decision be reversed and this matter remanded
pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further proceedings. (Doc. 24
at 20.) Defendant Nancy A. Berryhill, Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
failed to timely object to the Findings and Recommendations, and so has waived
the right to de novo review thereof. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l)(C). This Court reviews
for clear error those findings and recommendations to which no party objects. See
McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Commodore Bus. Mach., Inc., 656 F.2d 1309, 1313
(9th Cir. 1981); Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985). Clear error exists if the
Court is left with a "definite and firm conviction that a mistake has been
committed." United States v. Syrax, 235 F.3d 422, 427 (9th Cir. 2000) (citations
After reviewing the record and finding no clear error,
IT IS ORDERED that Judge Lynch's Findings and Recommendations (Doc.
24) are ADOPTED IN FULL. The Commissioner of Social Security's decision is
reversed and this matter remanded pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further
proceedings consistent with Judge Lynch's Findings and Recommendations (Doc.
