Commissioner’s motion for judgment on the pleadings (Doc. 16) is
denied, and plaintiff’s motion for judgment on the pleadings
(Doc. 18) is granted to the extent that this matter is remanded for
further proceedings consistent with this order and with the R&R.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to close this case.
