Grimes v. Commissioner of Social Security
Memorandum of Opinion and Order For the reasons set forth herein, the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge (ECF No. 17 ) is hereby adopted. The decision of the Commissioner of Social Security is affirmed. Judgment will be entered in favor of Defendant. Judge Benita Y. Pearson on 6/7/2021. (JLG)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
KENNETH L. GRIMES,
ANDREW M. SAUL,
CASE NO. 5:20CV1024
JUDGE BENITA Y. PEARSON
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION
An Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) denied Plaintiff Kenneth L. Grimes’s 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 the request to review the ALJ’s decision. The claimant sought judicial
review of the Commissioner’s decision, and the Court referred the case to Magistrate Judge
Kathleen B. Burke for preparation of a report and recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636
and Local Rule 72.2(b)(1). On May 18, 2021, the magistrate judge submitted a Report (ECF No.
17) recommending that the Court affirm the Commissioner’s decision.
Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2) provides that objections to a report and recommendation must be
filed within 14 days after service. Objections to the magistrate judge’s Report were, therefore,
due on June 1, 2021. Neither party has filed objections, evidencing satisfaction with the
magistrate judge’s recommendations. 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. 1981).
Accordingly, the Report & Recommendation of the magistrate judge is hereby adopted.
The decision of the Commissioner of Social Security is affirmed. Judgment will be entered in
favor of Defendant.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
