Thiele v. Commissioner Social Security
Memorandum of Opinion and Order For the reasons set forth herein, the Court adopts the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation, ECF No. 22 , and affirms the decision of the Commissioner of Social Security. Judge Benita Y. Pearson on 3/31/2017. (JLG)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
HERMAN J. THIELE, II,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
CASE NO. 1:16CV942
JUDGE BENITA Y. PEARSON
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION
An Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) denied Plaintiff Herman J. Thiele, II’s application
for Period of Disability and Disability Insurance Benefits after a hearing in the above-captioned
case. That decision became the final determination of the Commissioner of Social Security when
the Appeals Council denied Plaintiff’s request to review the ALJ’s decision. The claimant
sought judicial review of the Commissioner’s decision, and the Court referred the case to
Magistrate Judge Jonathan D. Greenberg for preparation of a Report and Recommendation
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636 and Local Rule 72.2(b)(1). On March 10, 2017, the magistrate judge
submitted a Report (ECF No. 22) recommending that the Court affirm the Commissioner’s
decision. ECF No. 22 at PageID #: 830.
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2) provides that objections to a report and recommendation must be
filed within fourteen days after service. Neither Plaintiff nor Defendant have filed objections,
evidencing satisfaction with the magistrate judge’s recommendations. Any further review by this
Court would be a duplicative and inefficient use of the Court’s limited resources. Thomas v. Arn,
728 F.2d 813 (6th Cir. 1984), aff’d, 474 U.S. 140 (1985); Howard v. Secretary of Health and
Human Services, 932 F.2d 505 (6th Cir. 1991); United States v. Walters, 638 F.2d 947, 949-50
(6th Cir. 1981).
Accordingly, the Court adopts the magistrate judge’s Report and Recommendation and
affirms the decision of the Commissioner of Social Security.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
