Hon. Liam O'Grady
NANCY A. BERRYHILL,
This mattercomes before the Court on Daniel Bradshaw's objections to Magistrate Judge
Davis's Report and Recommendation ("R & R") affirmingthe Social SecurityAdministration's
denial of Mr. Bradshaw's application for disability insurance benefits (DIB). The decision of
the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, Carolyn W. Colvin, to deny benefits,
was based ona finding by an Administrative law Judge ("ALJ") and a decision from the Appeals
Council for the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review that plaintiffwasnotdisabled as
defined by the Social Security Act and applicable regulations. The R & R affirmed this decision,
finding that the determination was supported by substantial evidencein the record and the correct
legal standards were applied in evaluating the evidence. Afterreviewing the R & R, Plaintiffs
objections, and the relevant caselaw, statutes, and regulations, the Court hereby OVERRULES
Mr. Bradshaw's objections and APPROVES and ADOPTS the R & R (Dkt. No. 21) in full.
Specifically, the Courtfinds that the Fourth Circuit's precedent in Grant v. Schweiker
guides the resolution of this case. 699 F. 2d 189 (4th Cir. 1983). In Grant, the Court wrote:
