January 27, 2015
LAURIE WALKER, Plaintiff,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant.
ORDER ACCEPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (DOC. #15) GRANTING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (DOC. #12), DENYING DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (DOC. #13) AND REMANDING ACTION
GEORGE CARAM STEEH UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
Before the court are the parties’ cross-motions for summary judgment, which were referred to the magistrate judge for a report and recommendation. On December 29, 2014, Magistrate Judge David Grand issued his report, recommending that the court grant plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment, deny the defendant’s motion for summary judgment, and remand the matter for further administrative proceedings pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g).
The magistrate judge specifically stated that any objections to his report were to be filed within 14 days of service, and that failure to file such objections constituted a waiver of any further right to appeal. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 155 (1985). No such objections were filed by either party.
The court has reviewed the record and briefing in this matter, as well as the magistrate judge’s report and recommendation. Finding that report and recommendation to be well-reasoned, the court hereby adopts the result recommended therein. Accordingly, plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment is hereby GRANTED. Defendant’s motion for summary judgment is DENIED, and this cause of action is REMANDED to the Commissioner of Social Security for further consideration pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) as stated in the report and recommendation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
