Benefits (“DIB”) be reversed and remanded for further proceedings pursuant to Sentence Four of 42
U.S.C. § 405(g). (Doc. No. 20 (Report and Recommendation [“R&R”]) at 1349.1) The defendant’s

Under the relevant statute:
Within fourteen days after being served with a copy, any party may serve and file

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.
