DARIN CARL MARTIN, Plaintiff,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant.
ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
GERALD E. ROSEN, Chief District Judge.
On January 12, 2015, Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen issued a Report and Recommendation ("R & R") recommending that the Court grant in part Plaintiff Darin Carl Martin's motion for summary judgment, deny the Defendant Commissioner of Social Security's motion for summary judgment, and remand this matter to the Defendant Commissioner under sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further administrative proceedings. No objections have been filed to the R & R. Upon reviewing the R & R, the parties' underlying cross-motions for summary judgment, and the record as a whole, the Court concurs in the analysis of the Magistrate Judge, and adopts the R & R in its entirety.
NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge's January 12, 2015 Report and Recommendation (docket #17) is ADOPTED as the opinion of this Court. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, for the reasons stated in the R & R, that Plaintiff's August 18, 2014 motion for summary judgment (docket #14) is GRANTED IN PART, and that Defendant's September 3, 2014 motion for summary judgment (docket #15) is DENIED. In accordance with these rulings, this case will be remanded to the Defendant Commissioner under sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further proceedings consistent with the Magistrate Judge's R & R.
