IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
THADDIUS A. WATKINS,
NANCY A. BERRYHILL,
Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
This matter is before the court on the Memorandum and Recommendation (“M&R”) of
United States Magistrate Judge James E. Gates, 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 DENIED, defendant’s motion is GRANTED, and this
matter is DISMISSED. The clerk of court is directed to close the case.
SO ORDERED this the 17th day of August, 2017.
LOUISE W. FLANAGAN
United States District Judge
