JUDGE DAN AARON POLSTER
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT
Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation of Magistrate Judge David Ruiz (“R
& R”), Doc #. 14, which recommends that the Court affirm the Commissioner’s final decision.
The R & R was filed on June 29, 2017. It is now July 17, and no objections to the R & R have
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). The failure to timely file written objections to a Magistrate Judge’s R & R
constitutes a waiver of the right to obtain a de novo review of the R & R in the district court.
United States v. Walters, 638 F.2d 947, 949–50 (6th Cir. 1981); Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140,
149–50 (1985). The failure to file written objections also results in a waiver of the right to
appeal. Thomas v. Arn, 728 F.2d 813 (6th Cir. 1984), aff’d, 474 U.S. 140 (1985).
Here, the time for objection has passed and no objections have been filed. Nonetheless,
the Court has reviewed the magistrate judge’s thorough R & R. The Court agrees with the
Magistrate Judge that the ALJ did not err in considering and weighing the opinions of the
treating sources. Additionally, the ALJ’s assessment of residual functional capacity is supported
by substantial evidence. Consequently, the Court agrees with the Magistrate Judge that the
Commissioner’s final decisions should be affirmed.
Accordingly, the Court ADOPTS the R & R, Doc. # 14, in full and DISMISSES the
IT IS SO ORDERED.
