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 12th day of September, 2017.
