Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
This Social Security appeal is before the court on the Report and Recommendation
filed by United States Magistrate Judge H. Bruce Guyton [R. 24]. There have been no
timely objections to the Report and Recommendation, and enough time has passed since
the filing of the Report and Recommendation to treat any objections as having been waived.
See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
After a careful review of the record and the parties’ pleadings, the court is in
complete agreement with the Magistrate Judge’s recommendation that plaintiff’s motion
for summary judgment be denied, and the Commissioner’s motion for summary judgment
Accordingly, the court ACCEPTS IN WHOLE the Report and
Recommendation under 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b). It is ORDERED,
for the reasons stated in the Report and Recommendation, which the court adopts and
incorporates into its ruling, that the plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment [R. 20] is
DENIED; the Commissioner’s motion for summary judgment [R. 22] is GRANTED; the
Commissioner’s decision in this case denying plaintiff’s application for benefits under the
Social Security Act is AFFIRMED; and this case is DISMISSED.
