United States District Court, E.D. Michigan, Southern Division
February 11, 2014
Alejandro De La Rosa on behalf of V.M.D., a minor, Plaintiff,
Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
ORDER ACCEPTING AND ADOPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S JANUARY 16, 2014 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION AND GRANTING IN PART PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT AND DENYING DEFENDANT'S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT AND REMANDING THE CASE BACK TO THE COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY 
NANCY G. EDMUNDS, District Judge.
This matter came before the Court on the magistrate judge's January 16, 2014 report and recommendation. The magistrate judge recommended that the Court grant in part Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment and deny Defendant's motion for summary judgment. Neither party has filed objections. "[T]he failure to object to the magistrate judge's report releases the Court from its duty to independently review the matter." Hall v. Rawal, 09-10933, 2012 WL 3639070, at *1 (E.D.Mich. Aug. 24, 2012) (citation omitted). The Court nevertheless agrees with the magistrate judge's recommendation.
Being fully advised in the premises, having read the pleadings, and for the reasons set forth above, the Court ACCEPTS and ADOPTS the magistrate judge's report and recommendation, and therefore GRANTS IN PART Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment, DENIES Defendant's motion for summary judgment, and REMANDS the case back to the Commission of Social Security pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g).
