TIMOTHY LEE BURCHETT,
Civil Action No. 1:15cv0411 (JFA)
CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
Social Security Administration,
This matter is before the court on cross-motions for summary judgment. Plaintiff seeks
judicial review of the final decision of Carolyn W. Colvin, Acting Commissioner of the Social
Security Administration ("Commissioner"), denying plaintiffs claim for Disability Insurance
Benefits ("DIB") and Supplemental Security Income ("SSI") under Titles II and XVI of the
Social Security Act. See 42 U.S.C. §§ 423, 1382. The Commissioner's final decision is based
on a finding by the Administrative Law Judge ("ALJ") and Appeals Council for the Office of
Disability Adjudication and Review ("Appeals Council") that claimant was not disabled as
defined by the Social Security Act and applicable regulations.1
On July 13, 2015, plaintiff filed a motion for summary judgment (Docket no. 12) and
memorandum in support (Docket no. 13). Thereafter, defendant submitted a cross-motion for
summaryjudgment (Docket no. 14), memorandum in support (Docket no. 15), and memorandum
