Judgment (Doc #: 8), Motion for Hearing on Default Judgment (Doc #: 11) and Motion to Strike
Answer (Doc #: 15). (Doc #: 16 (“R & R”)). The Court has reviewed the Motions, the R & R,
and Plaintiff’s Objection (Doc #: 17), and agrees with the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation.
It is undisputed that the Commissioner timely filed her Answer and Transcript on March
28, 2017, following two extensions of time granted by Magistrate Judge Greenberg. (See Doc

12 (second motion for extension) and non-document order of 3/28/2017 (granting motion)).
Consequently, default judgment is not appropriate in this case.
Accordingly, the Court DENIES Plaintiff’s pending Motions (Doc ##: 8, 11 and 15),
OVERRULES the Objection (Doc #: 17), and ADOPTS the thorough and correct analysis of
the record and the law articulated by the Magistrate Judge in the R & R (Doc #: 16).
