Alexander v. Colvin
ORDER granting 20 Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings; denying 22 Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings; and adopting 26 Memorandum and Recommendation - Signed by District Judge Louise Wood Flanagan on 04/01/2014. (Baker, C.)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
HOWARD LEE ALEXANDER,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
This matter is before the court on the Memorandum and Recommendation (“M&R”) of
United States Magistrate Judge William A. Webb, regarding the parties’ cross-motions for judgment
on the pleadings. No objections to the M&R have been filed, and the time within which to make any
objection has expired. This matter is ripe for ruling.
Upon careful review of the M&R and of the record generally, having found no clear error,
the court hereby ADOPTS the recommendation of the magistrate judge as its own, and, for the
reasons stated therein, plaintiff’s motion is GRANTED, defendant’s motion is DENIED, and this
matter is REMANDED to defendant pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further
proceedings consistent with the M&R. The clerk of court is directed to close the case.
SO ORDERED this the 1st day of April, 2014.
LOUISE W. FLANAGAN
United States District Judge
