UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
ANDREW W. BROTHERS,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
CASE NO. 5:16CV1942
JUDGE BENITA Y. PEARSON
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION AND
An Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) denied Plaintiff Andrew W. Brothers’ application
for Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) 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 Plaintiff’s request to review the ALJ’s decision. Plaintiff sought judicial
review of the Commissioner’s decision, and the Court referred the case to Magistrate Judge
David A. Ruiz 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 (ECF No. 19) recommending
that the Court affirm the Commissioner’s decision. ECF No. 19 at PageID #: 1186.
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2) provides that objections to a report and recommendation must be
filed within fourteen days after service. See also ECF No. 19 at PageID #: 1186 (instructing
parties to file any objections within fourteen days). No objections have been filed, evidencing
satisfaction with the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation. 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.
Accordingly, the Court adopts the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation. The
Court affirms the Commissioner’s decision and dismisses Plaintiff’s case in its entirety, with
IT IS SO ORDERED.
