Ashley Kristine Daniels,
Nancy A. Berryhill,
Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
Civil Action No. 6:17-cv-627-MBS-KFM
On March 7, 2017, Plaintiff Ashley Kristine Daniels brought this action seeking judicial
review of Defendant Commissioner’s denial of Plaintiff’s application for children’s insurance
benefits and for supplemental security income. On November 13, 2017, Defendant filed a motion
for entry of judgment with order of remand pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g).
Defendant contends that the case would benefit from additional administrative development.
Specifically, Defendant contends that the Appeals Council should instruct an administrative law
judge to complete the administrative record and call a medical expert, if warranted; further evaluate
Plaintiff’s impairments at step two of the sequential evaluation process; further evaluate of Plaintiff’s
impairments at step three, including Plaintiff’s intellectual functioning and articulate whether the
impairments meet or medically equal any of the Commissioner’s listed impairments; and issue a new
decision. Plaintiff consents to the motion. Accordingly,
Defendant’s motion (ECF No. 17) is granted. The case is reversed and remanded
pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further consideration as set forth herein.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
