IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
SAVANNAH LANE PARTIPILO
CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
Acting Commissioner of
This action was filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). The Commissioner has responded by
filing an answer (Docket Entry No. 11) on October 24, 2013.
The plaintiff shall have thirty (30) days from entry of this order to file a motion for judgment
on the record and accompanying memorandum, which shall include the following:1
(a) Statement of the Case. This statement shall briefly outline the course of proceedings
and disposition at the administrative level. The statement shall set forth a statement of relevant facts
including plaintiff's age, education, work experience, a summary of the physical and/or mental
impairments alleged by plaintiff, and an outline of the pertinent factual, medical, and vocational
evidence in the record. Each statement of fact should be supported by reference to the page(s) in the
record where the evidence is located.
(b) Statement of Errors.
This statement should set forth, in separately numbered
paragraphs, the specific errors allegedly committed at the administrative level which entitle the
plaintiff to relief. The court will consider only those errors specifically identified in the briefs. A
general allegation that the ALJ's findings are unsupported by substantial evidence is insufficient.
The plaintiff shall not file a motion for summary judgment, see Wilkins v. Baptist
Healthcare Sys., Inc., 150 F.3d 609, 619 (6th Cir. 1998) (Gilman, J., concurring), but rather a motion
for judgment on the administrative record.
Each specific error alleged should be supported by reference to the portion of the record
relied upon and by citations of statutes, regulations, and cases supporting the plaintiff's position.
Relevant cases from this district and circuit should be cited. If authority on point from this
jurisdiction does not exist, cases from other districts and circuits may be cited.
The plaintiff's memorandum should conclude with a short statement of the relief sought.
Specifically, the brief should state whether the plaintiff seeks (1) reversal; (2) remand; or (3) reversal
or, in the alternative, remand.2
The defendant shall, within thirty (30) days of the filing of the plaintiff's motion, file a
response. The defendant shall respond SPECIFICALLY to each issue raised by the plaintiff. The
defendant shall also support its response by reference to the portion of the record relied upon and by
citations of statutes, regulations, and cases supporting the defendant's position.
Defendant should include a "statement of the case," only to the extent defendant contends
plaintiff's statement is inaccurate or incomplete.
The plaintiff shall have 14 days from the filing of the response to file a reply if necessary.
It is so ORDERED.
United States Magistrate Judge
In the case of a remand, the plaintiff should indicate whether the remand is being sought
pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) or sentence six of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). If the relief
sought is a remand pursuant to sentence six, i.e., the plaintiff is seeking consideration of additional
evidence, the plaintiff must show that the evidence is new and material and that there was good cause
for failing to submit the evidence during the administrative proceedings.
If the plaintiff seeks another form of relief not mentioned above, the plaintiff is instructed
to state the relief sought and cite the proper authority supporting such relief.
