Ford v. Commissioner of Social Security
Order Adopting 13 the Report and Recommendation of the magistrate judge. This case is dismissed without prejudice. Judge Benita Y. Pearson on 7/13/2017 (C,KA)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
BRIAN KEITH FORD,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
CASE NO. 1:16CV2835
JUDGE BENITA Y. PEARSON
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
On November 21, 2016, pro se Plaintiff Brian Keith Ford filed a Complaint against the
Commissioner of Social Security. The Court referred the case to Magistrate Judge James R.
Knepp II for preparation of a report and recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636 and Local
Rule 72.2(b)(1). On June 23, 2017, the magistrate judge submitted a Report (ECF No. 13)
recommending that this case be dismissed for want of prosecution.
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2) provides that objections to a Report and Recommendation must
be filed within 14 days after service. Objections to the magistrate judge’s Report and
Recommendation were, therefore, due on July 10, 2017.1 Neither party has filed objections,
evidencing satisfaction with the magistrate judge’s recommendation. Any further review by this
Objections to the Report were due on July 7, 2017. See ECF No. 13 at PageID
#: 1388. Because pro se Plaintiff Brian Keith Ford was served with the Report by mail
pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 5(b)(2)(C), he was allowed an additional three (3) days to file
an Objection. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(d).
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, 94950 (6th Cir. 1981).
Accordingly, the Report and Recommendation of the magistrate judge is hereby adopted.
This case is dismissed without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
