Gary Helms Jackson,
Carolyn W. Colvin, Acting Commissioner of
Civil Action No.8: 14-4906-RMG
This matter comes before the Court for judicial review of the final decision of the Acting
Commissioner of Social Security denying Plaintiff's application for Disability Insurance
Benefits ("DIB") and Supplemental Security Income ("SSI"). In accordance with 28 U.S.C. §
636(b) and Local Rule 73.02, D.S.C., this matter was referred to the United States Magistrate
Judge for pretrial handling. The Magistrate Judge issued a Report and Recommendation on
January 26,2016, recommending that the decision of the Commissioner be reversed and
remanded to the agency because of the failure of the Administrative Law Judge to properly apply
the provisions of the Treating Physician Rule, 20 C.F.R. § 404.1527. (Dkt. No. 11). The Acting
Commissioner has filed a response to the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation
indicating that she will file no objections. (Dkt. No. 12). The Court has reviewed the Report and
Recommendation and the record evidence and finds that the Magistrate Judge has ably addressed
the factual and legal issues in this matter. Therefore, the Court ADOPTS the Report and
Recommendation (Dkt. No. 11) as the order of this Court, REVERSES the decision of the
Commissioner pursuant to Sentence Four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g), and REMANDS the matter to
the Commissioner for further proceedings consistent with this order.
AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
