Helton v. Commissioner of Social Security
Order Adopting 14 Report and Recommendation in its entirety. The Commissioner's final decision is affirmed. Judge Jack Zouhary on 12/16/2013. (D,L)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
Christan Elisabeth Helton,
Case No. 3:13 CV 00941
JUDGE JACK ZOUHARY
Carolyn W. Colvin, Acting Commissioner
of Social Security,
This Court has reviewed the Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) of the Magistrate Judge
filed November 25, 2013 (Doc. 14). The R&R recommends that the decision of the Commissioner
should be affirmed (Doc. 19 at 19).
Under the relevant statute, 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1):
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.
The failure to file objections within the time frame set forth in the statute constitutes a waiver
of de novo review by the district court. See United States v. Sullivan, 431 F.3d 976, 984 (6th Cir.
2005); Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140 (1985).
The two week deadline for filing objections passed on December 9, 2013. No objections have
been filed. The R&R, which accurately states the facts and law, is adopted in its entirety.
Accordingly, the Commissioner’s final decision is affirmed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
