VIMUEL NEAL RIDGEWAY, Plaintiff,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant.
CURTIS L. COLLIER UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.
On December 31, 2014, United States Magistrate Judge William B. Mitchell Carter filed a report and recommendation (“R&R”) in this case, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b) (Court File No. 13). Neither party has objected to the R&R within the given fourteen days.
After reviewing the record, the Court agrees with the R&R. The Court hereby ACCEPTS and ADOPTS the magistrate judge’s findings of fact, conclusions of law, and recommendations.
Accordingly, the Court ORDERS that:
(1) The plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment (Court File No. 10) is DENIED;
(2) The defendant’s motion for summary judgment (Court File No. 11) is GRANTED;
(3) The Commissioner’s decision denying benefits to the plaintiff is AFFIRMED; and
(4) This action is DISMISSED.
Because no further matters remain for adjudication, the Clerk of Court is directed to CLOSE the case.
