Booth v. Commissioner of Social Security Administration
Memorandum of Opinion and Order adopting the 21 Report and Recommendation of the magistrate judge. The decision of the Commissioner of Social Security is affirmed. Judgment will be entered in favor of Defendant. Judge Benita Y. Pearson on 1/11/2018. (S,L)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
CASE NO. 1:17CV426
JUDGE BENITA Y. PEARSON
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION AND
An Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) denied Plaintiff Jeremy Booth’s application for
Supplemental Social Security Income and Disability Insurance Benefits, after a hearing in the
above-captioned case. That decision became the final determination of the Commissioner of
Social Security when the Appeals Council denied the request to review the ALJ’s decision. The
claimant sought judicial review of the Commissioner’s decision, and the Court referred the case
to Magistrate Judge William H. Baughman, Jr. for preparation of a report and recommendation
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636 and Local Rule 72.2(b)(1).
Magistrate Judge Baughman issued a Report and Recommendation (ECF No. 21),
recommending that the Court affirm the decision of the Commission.
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 December 28, 2017. Neither party has filed
objections, evidencing satisfaction with the magistrate judge’s recommendations. Any further
review by this 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, 949-50 (6th Cir. 1981).
Accordingly, the Report and Recommendation of the magistrate judge is hereby adopted.
The decision of the Commissioner of Social Security is affirmed. Judgment will be entered in
favor of Defendant.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
