ERNESTINE A. KING, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Defendant.
ORDER ADOPTING REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION (DOCUMENT NO. 19), GRANTING COLVIN'S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (DOCUMENT NO. 17), DENYING KING’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (DOCUMENT NO. 15), AND DISMISSING CASE
HONORABLE STEPHEN J. MURPHY, III United States District Judge.
The Social Security Administration denied plaintiff and claimant Ernestine King's application for a period of disability and disability insurance benefits in a decision issued by an Administrative Law Judge on October 22, 2010. See Tr. 16, ALJ Decision, ECF No. 12-3. An appeal and remand followed, and a second Administrative Law Judge again found King not disabled. See Tr. 12, ALJ Decision, ECF No. 12-2. After the SSA Appeals Council declined to review the decision, King appealed to this Court. The Court referred the matter to a United States Magistrate Judge, and the parties filed cross motions for summary judgment. On February 24, 2015, the magistrate judge issued a Report and Recommendation suggesting the Court grant Colvin’s motion and deny King's motion. Report, ECF No. 19.
Under Civil Rule 72(b), each party had fourteen days from the date of service to file any written objections to the recommended disposition. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b). Neither party has filed objections. De novo review of the magistrate judge’s findings is therefore not required. Id. The Court has reviewed the file and the Report, and finds the magistrate judge’s analysis is proper. Accordingly, the Court adopts the Report’s findings and conclusions, and will enter an appropriate judgment.
WHEREFORE, it is hereby ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation (document no. 19) is ADOPTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Commissioner's Motion for Summary Judgment (document no. 17) is GRANTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that King’s Motion for Summary Judgment (document no. 15) is DENIED, and the case is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
