IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA

) C.A. #2:15-1661-PMD
Carolyn W. Colvin,
Acting Commissioner of the Social Security )
This social security case is before the Court upon the magistrate judge's recommendation that
the decision of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration be reversed with a remand
of the cause to the Commissioner. The record includes a report and recommendation of the United
States Magistrate Judge made in accordance with this Court's Order of Reference and 28 U.S.C. §
This Court is charged with conducting a de novo review of any portion of the magistrate
judge's report to which a specific objection is registered, and may accept, reject, or modify in whole
or in part, the recommendations contained in that report. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). However, absent
prompt objection by a dissatisfied party, it appears that Congress did not intend for the district court
to review the factual and legal conclusions of the magistrate judge. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140
(1985). Additionally, any party who fails to file timely, written objections to the magistrate judge's
report pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) waives the right to raise those objections at the appellate
court level. United States v. Schronce, 727 F.2d 91 (4th Cir. 1984). No objections have been filed
to the magistrate judge's report.1
Defendant filed a Notice of Not Filing Objections on August 18, 2016.
A review of the record indicates that the magistrate judge's report accurately summarizes this
case and the applicable law. Accordingly, the magistrate judge's report is incorporated into this
Order. For the reasons articulated by the magistrate judge, the decision of the Commissioner is
hereby reversed under sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) and remanded to the Commissioner
for further action consistent with the findings in the Report and Recommendation.
AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
