Judge James G. Carr on 10/18/17. (Attachments: # 1 Report and Recommnedation)(C,D)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
Case No. 3:16CV2621
Nancy A. Berryhill,
Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
This is a Social Security case in which the plaintiff, Sheala Davidson, appeals from the
Commissioner’s decision denying her application for disability benefits.
An administrative law judge found that Davidson, despite suffering from multiple severe
impairments, was not disabled. This was so, the ALJ concluded, because Davidson: 1) had the
residual functional capacity (RFC) to perform “medium work”; and 2) was therefore capable of
performing past relevant work as an “Inspector/Hand Packager.” (Doc. 10 at 184, 192).
Pending is Magistrate Judge Greenberg’s Report and Recommendation, which recommends
that I vacate the Commissioner’s decision and remand the case for further proceedings. (Doc. 16).
The Magistrate Judge found that, in formulating the physical restrictions in Davidson’s RFC,
the ALJ essentially ignored a wealth of evidence tending to corroborate Davidson’s claims as to the
severity of her neck, back, and hand pain. (Id. at 25–30). Because Magistrate Judge Greenberg found
that “the physical limitations in the RFC are not supported by substantial evidence,” he
recommended that the case “be remanded for a more complete consideration of the evidence
regarding Davidson’s chronic neck, back, and hand pain in determining the RFC.” (Id. at 32).
The Commissioner has indicated that she will not be filing an objection to the R&R.
There being no objection to the R&R, which I find, in any event, to be well-taken and correct,
it is hereby
The Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation (Doc. 16) be, and the same
hereby is, adopted as the order of the court; and
The Commissioner’s decision be, and the same hereby is, vacated, and this case is
remanded to the Commissioner for further proceedings consistent with this order and
the Report and Recommendation.
