IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
BRADLEY D. FULLER,
CASE NO. 3:22 CV 197
JUDGE JAMES R. KNEPP II
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND
Plaintiff Bradley D. Fuller seeks judicial review of an adverse social security decision
under 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). This case was referred to Magistrate Judge Darrell A. Clay for a Report
and Recommendation (“R&R”) under Local Civil Rule 72.2(b)(2). Judge Clay recommends this
Court reverse the Commissioner’s final decision and remand this case for further proceedings.
Under the relevant statute:
Within fourteen days of being served with a copy [of a Magistrate Judge’s R&R],
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.
28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); see also FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b)(2). The failure to file timely written
objections to a Magistrate Judge’s R&R constitutes a waiver of de novo review by the district court
of any issues covered in the R&R. Thomas v. Arn, 728 F.2d 813, 814-15 (6th Cir. 1984); United
States v. Walters, 638 F.2d 947, 949-50 (6th Cir. 1981).
In this case, the Commissioner filed a response indicating she would not be filing
objections to the R&R. (Doc. 14).
Case: 3:22-cv-00197-JRK Doc #: 15 Filed: 01/17/23 2 of 2. PageID #: 1263
Despite the lack of objections, the Court has reviewed Judge Clay’s R&R, and agrees with
the findings and recommendation therein. Therefore, the Court ADOPTS Judge Clay’s R&R (Doc.
13) as the Order of this Court. The Court REVERSES the Commissioner’s final decision and
REMANDS the case for further proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
