BRUCE BRIAN CANTRELL, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
JOHN T. NIXON, Senior District Judge.
Pending before the Court is Plaintiff's Motion for Judgment on the Administrative Record ("Motion") (Doc. No. 12), filed with a Brief in Support (Doc. No. 12-1). Defendant Commissioner of Social Security filed a Response opposing Plaintiff's Motion. (Doc. No. 15.) Subsequently, Magistrate Judge Knowles issued a Report and Recommendation ("Report") recommending that the Motion be denied. (Doc. No. 17 at 36.) The Report was filed on February 11, 2015, and provided a period of fourteen days in which either party could file an objection. ( Id. ) Neither party has filed an objection to date.
Upon review of this matter, the Court finds the Report to be well-founded and ADOPTS it in its entirety. Accordingly, the Court hereby DENIES Plaintiff's Motion and AFFIRMS the Commissioner's decision. Defendant's Motion for a Stay Because of Lapse of Appropriations (Doc. No. 16) is TERMINATED AS MOOT. The Clerk of the Court is DIRECTED to close this case.
It is so ORDERED.
