UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
This Social Security appeal is before the Court on the Report and
Recommendation entered by United States Magistrate Judge C. Clifford Shirley, Jr., on
December 16, 2016 [Doc. 16]. 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). In the Report and Recommendation, the magistrate
judge recommends that plaintiff’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings [Doc. 12] be
denied and defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment [Doc. 14] be granted.
The Court has carefully reviewed this matter, including the underlying motions,
and the Court is in agreement with the magistrate judge’s recommendations, which the
Court adopts and incorporates into its ruling. Accordingly, the Court ACCEPTS IN
WHOLE the Report and Recommendation [Doc. 16], and it is ORDERED that
plaintiff’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings [Doc. 12] is DENIED and defendant’s
Motion for Summary Judgment [Doc. 14] is GRANTED. This case is DISMISSED and
the Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
