United States District Court, E.D. Michigan, Southern Division
January 26, 2015
AUTUMN N. YETTAW, Plaintiff,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (DKT. 16)
TERRENCE G. BERG, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court on Magistrate Judge David R. Grand's December 31, 2014 Report and Recommendation (Dkt. 16), recommending that Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment (Dkt. 11) be DENIED, that Defendant's motion for summary judgment (Dkt. 15) be GRANTED, and that the Commissioner be AFFIRMED.
The Court has reviewed the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation. The law provides that either party may serve and file written objections "[w]ithin fourteen days after being served with a copy" of the report and recommendations. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). The district court will make a "de novo determination of those portions of the report... to which objection is made." Id. Where, as here, neither party objects to the report, the district court is not obligated to independently review the record. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149-52 (1985). The Court has reviewed and will accept the Magistrate's Report and Recommendation of December 31, 2014, as this Court's findings of fact and conlcusions of law.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Magistrate Judge David R. Grand's Report and Recommendation of December 31, 2014 (Dkt. 12) is ACCEPTED and ADOPTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion for summary judgment (Dkt. 11) is DENIED, Defendant's motion for summary judgment (Dkt. 15) is GRANTED, and the findings and conclusions of the Commissioner are AFFIRMED.
