The Report and Recommendation recommends that the decision of the
Commissioner be affirmed and that the complaint be dismissed with prejudice. Plaintiff filed
written objections on September 14, 2017.
Having made a de novo review of the objection filed by Plaintiff, the findings, conclusions
and recommendation of the Magistrate Judge are correct and Plaintiff’s objection is without merit.
There is substantial evidence in the record supporting the Commissioner’s decision and the ALJ
applied the correct legal standards.
In his objection, Plaintiff asserts that the Report and

activities of daily living support the RFC finding. The occupational therapy record cited by
Plaintiff in her brief and in her written objections, however, does not show error.

his limitations, and Plaintiff’s activities of daily living. The ALJ applied the correct legal
standards. The findings and conclusions of the Magistrate Judge are, therefore, adopted as those
of the Court. It is
ORDERED that Plaintiff’s objection is OVERRULED.
The decision of the

PREJUDICE. It is further
ORDERED that any motion not previously ruled on is DENIED.
