United States District Court, E.D. Tennessee, Knoxville Division
October 7, 2014
REESA D. WALSH, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
THOMAS A. VARLAN, District Judge.
This Social Security appeal is before the Court on the Report and Recommendation entered by United States Magistrate Judge C. Clifford Shirley, Jr., on September 19, 2014 [Doc. 20]. There have been no timely objections to the Report and Recommendation and enough time has passed since the filing of the Report and Recommendation to treat any objections as having been waived. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b). In the Report and Recommendation, the magistrate judge recommends that plaintiff's motion for judgment on the pleadings [Doc. 16] be denied and that the Commissioner's motion for summary judgment [Doc. 18] be granted.
The Court has carefully reviewed this matter, including the underlying motions and the complaint, and the Court is in agreement with the magistrate judge's recommendations, which the Court adopts and incorporates into its ruling. Accordingly, the Court ACCEPTS IN WHOLE the Report and Recommendation [Doc. 20], and it is ORDERED that the Commissioner's Motion for Summary Judgment [Doc. 18] is GRANTED and plaintiff's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings [Doc. 16] is DENIED. The ALJ's decision in this case is AFFIRMED. This case is DISMISSED, and the Clerk of Court is DIRECTED to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
