Norris v. Colvin
ORDER denying 20 Motion to Remand to Social Security Administration. Signed by US District Judge Terrence W. Boyle on 5/2/2017. (Stouch, L.)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
RITA E. NORRIS,
NANCY A. BERRYHILL,
Acting Commissioner ofSocial Security,
This cause comes before the Court on plaintiff's motion for judgment _?n the pleadings
and defendant's motion to remand under sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g).
Plaintiff brought this action under 42 U.S.C. §§ 405(g) and 1383(c)(3) for review of the
final decision of the Commissioner denying her claim for disability insurance benefits (DIB) and
supplemental security income (SSI) pursuant to Titles II and XVI of the Social Security Act.
Plaintiff has filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings pursuant to Rule 12(c) of the Federal
Rules of Civil Procedure and defendant has moved to remand the case to the Commissioner for
further action pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g).
In her motion, defendant notes only that remand under sentence four is appropriate in any
case that requires further fact finding. Although plaintiff does not oppose remand, defendant has
failed to demonstrate that remand is appropriate in this case and her motion is therefore denied.
For the foregoing reasons, defendant's motion to remand [DE 20] is DENIED. This
matter will be set for hearing on plaintiffs motion for judgment on the pleadings by separate
SO ORDERED, this~ day of May, 2017.
T RRENCE W. BOYLE
