IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINA
Robert Richardson, Jr.,
Nancy A. Berryhill,
Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
C/A No.: 6:16-1738-TLW-KFM
Plaintiff Robert Richardson, Jr., brought this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g), seeking
judicial review of the Commissioner of Social Security’s final decision denying Plaintiff’s claims
for supplemental security income. ECF No. 1. This matter is before the Court for review of the
Report and Recommendation (R&R) filed by United States Magistrate Judge McDonald, ECF No.
22, to whom this case was previously assigned pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. §
636(b)(1)(B) and Local Civil Rule 73.02(B)(2), (D.S.C.). In the R&R, the Magistrate Judge
recommends the decision of the Commissioner be reversed and the case remanded for further
explanation consistent with the R&R. The Commissioner filed a notice that she did not object to
the R&R, ECF No. 25, and no other objections were filed.
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. In the absence
of objections to the R&R, this Court is not required to give any explanation for adopting the
recommendation. See Camby v. Davis, 718 F.2d 198, 199 (4th Cir. 1983).
In light of the standard above, this Court has carefully reviewed the Magistrate Judge’s
R&R. Noting that no objections were received, the R&R is hereby ACCEPTED. For the reasons
articulated by the Magistrate Judge, the Commissioner’s decision is reversed, and this case is
remanded for further administrative action consistent with the R&R.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
