IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Terence McFadden, Sr.,
Michael J. Astrue,
Commissioner of Social Security,
C/A No. 2:11-2101-TMC
OPINION AND ORDER
This matter is before the court for a review of the Magistrate Judge’s Report and
Recommendation (“Report”) filed on October 24, 2012, recommending that the decision
of the Commissioner of Social Security (“the Commissioner”) denying Plaintiff’s claim for
Disability Insurance Benefits (“DIB”) and Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) be
reversed and remanded, pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g), to the
Commissioner for further proceedings consistent with the Magistrate Judge’s Report.
(Dkt. # 20).
The Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation is made in accordance with
28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Local Civil Rule 73.02 for the District of South Carolina. The
Magistrate Judge makes only a recommendation to this court. The recommendation has
no presumptive weight. The responsibility to make a final determination remains with this
court. See Mathews v. Weber, 423 U.S. 261, 270-71 (1976). The court is charged with
making a de novo determination of those portions of the Report and Recommendation to
which specific objections are made, and the court may accept, reject, or modify, in whole
or in part, the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation or recommit the matter with
instructions. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
Plaintiff has not filed any objections to the Report. The Commissioner filed a
notice of no objections on November 13, 2012. (Dkt. # 21).
In the absence of objections to the Magistrate Judge’s Report and
Recommendation, this court is not required to provide an explanation for adopting the
recommendation. See Camby v. Davis, 718 F.2d 198, 199 (4th Cir. 1983). Rather, “in
the absence of a timely filed objection, a district court need not conduct a de novo review,
but instead must ‘only satisfy itself that there is no clear error on the face of the record in
order to accept the recommendation.’” Diamond v. Colonial Life & Acc. Ins. Co., 416
F.3d 310, 315 (4th Cir. 2005) (quoting Fed. R. Civ. P. 72 advisory committee’s note).
Furthermore, failure to file specific written objections to the Report and Recommendation
results in a party’s waiver of the right to appeal from the judgment of the District Court
based upon such recommendation. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140
(1985); Wright v. Collins, 766 F.2d 841 (4th Cir. 1985); United States v. Schronce, 727
F.2d 91 (4th Cir. 1984).
After a thorough and careful review of the record, the court adopts the Report of
the Magistrate Judge and the Commissioner’s final decision is reversed and remanded
pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further proceedings consistent with
the Magistrate Judge’s Report.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
