Jarrett v. Social Security Administration, Commissioner of
ORDER granting 10 Motion for Summary Judgment; adopting Report and Recommendations re 13 Report and Recommendations. Signed by District Judge Travis R McDonough on 3/6/2018. (BDG, ) Modified on 3/6/2018 (BDG, ). ORDER MAILED TO JARRETT
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
MARK DANIEL JARRETT,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
Case No. 2:17-cv-25
Judge Travis R. McDonough
Magistrate Judge Clifton L. Corker
On February 14, 2018, United States Magistrate Judge Clifton L. Corker filed his Report
and Recommendation (Doc. 13) pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Federal Rule of Civil
Procedure 72(b). Magistrate Judge Corker recommended that Defendant Commissioner of
Social Security Administration’s motion for summary judgment (Doc. 10) be granted and that
the case be dismissed. (Doc. 13.)
Plaintiff Mark Daniel Jarrett has filed no objections to Magistrate Judge Corker’s Report
and Recommendation.1 Nevertheless, the Court has conducted a review of the Report and
Recommendation, as well as the record, and it agrees with Magistrate Judge Corker’s wellreasoned conclusions.
Magistrate Judge Corker specifically advised Plaintiff that he fourteen days in which to object
to the Report and Recommendation and that failure to do so would waive his right to appeal.
(Doc. 13, at 16 n.1); see Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(2); see also Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 148–51
(1985) (noting that “[i]t does not appear that Congress intended to require district court review of
a magistrate’s factual or legal conclusions, under a de novo or any other standard, when neither
party objects to those findings”). Even taking into account the three additional days for service
provided by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(d), the period in which Plaintiff could timely file
any objections has now expired.
Accordingly, the Court will ACCEPT and ADOPT Magistrate Judge Corker’s report
and recommendation (Doc. 13). Defendant’s motion for summary judgment (Doc. 10) is
GRANTED, and this case is hereby DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
AN APPROPRIATE JUDGMENT WILL ENTER.
