This matter is before the Court on the Parties’ Cross-Motions for Summary Judgment as to Plaintiff Albert McKeel’s claim for judicial review of Defendant’s, Commissioner of Social Security, denial of his application for disability insurance benefits. The matter was referred to Magistrate Judge Anthony P. Patti, who issued a Report and Recommendation on May 20, 2015, recommending that the Court grant Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment, and deny Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment. Magistrate Judge Patti further recommended that the Court reverse the Commissioner’s findings, and remand this case to the Commissioner and the Administrative Law Judge under Sentence Four of § 405(g) for further consideration consistent with the Report and Recommendation.
Upon review of the Parties’ briefing and the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation, the Court concludes that Magistrate Judge Patti reached the correct conclusion. Therefore, the Court hereby ACCEPTS and ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Patti’s May 20, 2015 Report and Recommendation [#18] as this Court’s findings of fact and conclusions of law. Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment [#15] is DENIED. Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment [#14] is GRANTED.
This cause of action is DISMISSED and REMANDED for further proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
