Maley v. Commissioner of Social Security
Memorandum, Opinion, and Order Adopting the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge. This matter is reversed and remanded for further analysis. Judge John R. Adams on 7/8/14. (K,C)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
THERESA JO MALEY,
Commissioner of Social Security
JUDGE JOHN R. ADAMS
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION
The Social Security Administration denied Plaintiff’s application for Supplemental
Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits. Plaintiff sought judicial
review of the Commissioner’s decision, and this Court referred the case to the Magistrate Judge
for preparation of a report and recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 636 and Local Rule
72.2(b)(1). The Magistrate Judge submitted a report and recommendation recommending that
the Court reverse the decision of the ALJ and remand for further analysis under the treating
physician’s rule and to reconsider his assessment of Plaintiff’s credibility. Doc. 13.
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b) provides that the parties may object to a report and recommendation
within 14 days after service. The Commissioner responded to the R&R by stating that she has no
objections to the R&R. Doc. 13. Thus, 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); Howard v. Sec’y of Health and Human Servs., 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.
This matter is REVERSED and REMANDED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 8, 2014
