CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
Commissioner of the
Social Security Administration
AND NOW, this 12th day of August, 2015, upon consideration of plaintiff
George T. Caffery’s brief and statement of issues in support of request for review (docket entry
#10), defendant Carolyn W. Colvin’s response thereto, plaintiff’s reply thereto, and the
Honorable Henry S. Perkin’s thorough and well-reasoned report and recommendation (docket
entry #15), to which neither party has filed an objection within the time period specified by Loc.
R. Civ. P. 72.1 IV (b), and the Court agreeing with Judge Perkin that the matter should be
remanded for an explanation as to the apparent conflict between the vocational expert’s
testimony that a person with the limitations set out by the administrative law judge could
perform the jobs of Warehouse Checker, Flagger, Digital Inspector, and Cashier II and the
descriptions of those jobs in the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, and so that the administrative
law judge can incorporate plaintiff’s bilateral sensori-hearing loss with understanding of 84% in
the hypothetical to the vocational expert on remand, it is hereby ORDERED that:
Judge Perkin’s report and recommendation (docket entry #15) is
APPROVED and ADOPTED;
Plaintiff’s request for review (docket entry #10) is GRANTED IN PART;
This case is REMANDED to the Commissioner pursuant to the fourth
sentence of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further proceedings consistent with Judge Perkin’s report and
The decision of the Commissioner is REVERSED for the purposes of
remand only; and
