UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
TAMIKA DONNELL BARNES,
Case No. 2:13-cv-01857-RFB-PAL
Commissioner of Social Security,
Before the Court is a Report and Recommendation issued by the Honorable Peggy A. Leen,
United States Magistrate Judge, regarding Plaintiff’s Complaint. ECF No. 29.
On May 17, 2016, Judge Leen issued an order denying Plaintiff Tamika Barnes’ Motion to
Reverse/Remand. ECF No. 4. The Court reviewed the Administrative Record as a whole, and
weighing the evidence that supports and detracts from the Commissioner’s conclusion, the Court
finds that the ALJ’s decision is supported by substantial evidence under 42 U.S.C. § 405(g), and
therefore, Commissioner’s Cross-Motion to Affirm is granted. ECF No. 23. The Clerk of Court
should enter judgment accordingly and close this case.
A district court “may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or
recommendations made by the magistrate.” 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). A party may file specific
written objections to the findings and recommendations of a magistrate judge. 28 U.S.C. §
636(b)(1); Local Rule IB 3-2(a). When written objections have been filed, the district court is
required to “make a de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed
findings or recommendations to which objection is made.” 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); see also Local
Rule IB 3-2(b). Where a party fails to object, however, a district court is not required to conduct
“any review,” de novo or otherwise, of the report and recommendations of a magistrate judge.
Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985).
Under Local Rule IB 3-2(a), objections to the Report and Recommendation were due by
June 3, 2016. No objections have been filed. The Court has reviewed the record in this case and
agrees with Judge Leen’s recommendation.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Leen’s Report & Recommendation
are ADOPTED in their entirety, and Plaintiff Tamika Barnes’ Motion Reverse/Remand is
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that The Commissioner’s Cross- Motion to Affirm is
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court shall serve this Order on the persons
and respective addresses noted in the Report and Recommendation and the Clerk shall enter
judgment accordingly and close the case.
DATED this 13th day of October, 2016.
