UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY
CASE NO. 1:16-cv-1583
JUDGE SARA LIOI
Before the Court is the report and recommendation of Magistrate Judge David Ruiz,
recommending that the decision of the Commissioner of Social Security (“Commissioner”) denying
the applications of plaintiff William Richardson (“plaintiff”) for Period of Disability (“POD”) and
Disability Insurance Benefits (“DIB”) under Title II of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 416(i),
423, et seq. (“Act”), be affirmed. (Doc. No. 14 (Report and Recommendation [“R&R”]).)
Under the relevant statute:
Within fourteen days after being served with a copy, any party may serve and file
written objections to such proposed findings and recommendations as provided by
rules of court. A judge of the court shall make a de novo determination of those
portions of the report or specified proposed findings or recommendations to which
objection is made.
28 U.S.C. ' 636(b)(1)(C).
The R&R was issued on March 3, 2017. Plaintiff is represented by counsel. No objection to
the R&R has been filed. The failure to file written objections to the report and recommendation of a
magistrate judge constitutes a waiver of a de novo determination by the district court of an issue
covered in the report. Thomas v. Arn, 728 F.2d 813 (6th Cir. 1984), aff=d, 474 U.S. 140 (1985); see
United States v. Walters, 638 F.2d 947 (6th Cir. 1981).
The Court has reviewed Magistrate Judge Ruiz’s report and recommendation and adopts the
same. Accordingly, the final decision of the Commissioner of Social Security denying plaintiff’s
applications for period of disability and disability insurance benefits under Title II of the Social
Security Act is AFFIRMED. This case is dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
