Blair v. Colvin

Filing 18

ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION for 17 Report and Recommendations, 14 Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings filed by Carolyn W Colvin, 12 Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings filed by Nisa Blair. After conducting a thorough review of the record, the Court concludes that Magistrate Judge Fox's opinion - at least with respect to the ALJ's failure to develop the administrative record - is not facially erroneous. Accordingly, the Court adopts the Report and Recommenda tion with respect to remand, and, for the reasons set forth in the Report and Recommendation, grants Plaintiff's motion for judgment on the pleadings, denies Defendant's motion, reverses the judgment of the ALJ, and remands this matter to allow the ALJ to develop the record with functional assessments from Plaintiff's treating physicians. The Clerk of Court is respectfully directed to terminate the motions pending at docket numbers 12 and 14 and close this case, and as further set forth herein. (Signed by Judge Richard J. Sullivan on 9/27/2017) (ras)
