Mills v. Commissioner of Social Security Administration
ORDER RULING ON 25 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION It is ordered that the Commissioner's final decision denying benefits is hereby affirmed. Signed by Honorable Patrick Michael Duffy on 08/08/2017. (egra, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Angela D. Mills,
Nancy A. Berryhill, Acting
Commissioner of Social Security,
) C.A. #6:16-1320-PMD
This social security case is before the Court upon the magistrate judge's recommendation that
the final decision of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration (the "Commissioner")
to deny the plaintiff's request for benefits be affirmed.
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. § 636(b)(1)(B).
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.
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
For the reasons articulated by the magistrate judge, the Commissioner's final decision
denying benefits is hereby AFFIRMED.
AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
