UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
BRANDON CARL LOWE,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
CASE NO. 5:22-CV-1126
JUDGE BENITA Y. PEARSON
MEMORANDUM OF OPINION AND
[Regarding ECF No. 12]
On April 18, 2023, the assigned magistrate judge issued a Report and Recommendation
suggesting that the Commissioner’s decision denying Plaintiff’s application for Supplemental
Security Income (“SSI”) be affirmed. See ECF No. 12.
The Federal Magistrates Act requires a district court to conduct a de novo review only of
those portions of a Report and Recommendation to which the parties have made an objection. 28
U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). Parties must file any objections to a Report and Recommendation within
fourteen days of service. Id.; Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2). Failure to object within this time waives a
party’s right to appeal the district court’s judgment. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 145 (1985);
United States v. Walters, 638 F.2d 947, 949–50 (6th Cir. 1981). Absent objections, a district court
may adopt a magistrate judge’s report without review. See Thomas, 474 U.S. at 149.
In the instant case, objections to the Report and Recommendation were due by May 2,
2023. None of the parties of have filed any objections. Accordingly, the Court adopts the
Report and Recommendation. ECF No. 12. The Commissioner’s decision denying Plaintiff
Supplemental Security Income is affirmed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
