UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
CASE NO. 16-5884 RJB DWC
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND
NANCY A. BERRYHILL, Acting
Commissioner of Social Security
This matter comes before the Court on the Report and Recommendation of U.S.
Magistrate Judge David W. Christel. Dkt. 17. The Court has reviewed the Report and
Recommendation, Plaintiff’s Objections to the Report and Recommendation, and the remaining
Plaintiff filed this case challenging the denial of her application for Supplemental
Security Income benefits. Dkt. 1. On April 27, 2017, a Report and Recommendation was filed,
recommending that the case be remanded to the Social Security Administration for further
proceedings. Dkt. 17. Specifically, the Report and Recommendation recommends that the Court
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION - 1
find that Plaintiff’s childcare activities and other activities of daily living raise questions in the
record about Plaintiff’s functional abilities, so, a remand is appropriate. Id. The facts are in the
Report and Recommendation and are adopted here.
Plaintiff filed Objections to the Report and Recommendation, repeating the same
arguments she raised in her prior briefing. These arguments are addressed in the Report and
Recommendation and do not provide a basis to reject it.
The Report and Recommendation (Dkt. 17) should be adopted. The Commissioner’s
decision should be reversed and the case remanded to the Social Security Administration for
further proceedings consistent with this opinion. Defendant’s Motion for Remand (Dkt. 15),
properly construed as Defendant’s response, should be denied as moot.
It is ORDERED that:
The Report and Recommendation (Dkt. 17) IS ADOPTED;
The decision of the Commissioner IS REVERSED, and the case IS
REMANDED pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405 (g) to the Social
Security Administration for further proceedings; and
Defendant’s Motion to Remand (Dkt. 15) IS DENIED AS MOOT.
The Clerk is directed to send uncertified copies of this Order to all counsel of record and
to any party appearing pro se at said party’s last known address.
Dated this 30th day of May, 2017.
