UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
May 14, 2012
HERMAN A. WAHL, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.
This matter comes before the Court following a Report-Recommendation filed on March 23, 2012 by the Honorable Victor E. Bianchini, United States Magistrate Judge, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Northern District of New York Local Rule 72.3(d). Dkt. No. 15 ("Report-Recommendation").
Within fourteen days after a party has been served with a copy of a magistrate judge's report-recommendation, the party "may serve and file specific, written objections to the proposed findings and recommendations." FED. R. CIV. P. 72(b); N.D.N.Y. L.R. 72.1(c). "If no objections are filed . . . reviewing courts should review a report and recommendation for clear error." Edwards v. Fischer, 414 F. Supp. 2d 342, 346-47 (S.D.N.Y. 2006) (citations omitted).
Here, no objections have been raised in the allotted time with respect to Magistrate Judge Bianchini's Report-Recommendation. After examining the record, the Court has determined that the Report-Recommendation is not subject to attack for clear error or manifest injustice.
Accordingly, it is hereby:
ORDERED, that the Report-Recommendation (Dkt. No. 15) is APPROVED and ADOPTED in its ENTIRETY; and it is further
ORDERED, that Defendant's Motion for judgment on the pleadings (Dkt. No. 12) is DENIED; and it is further
ORDERED, that Plaintiff's Motion for judgment on the pleadings (Dkt. No. 11) is GRANTED; and it is further
ORDERED, that this case is REMANDED for further administrative proceedings consistent with the Report-Recommendation (Dkt. No. 15); and it is further
ORDERED, that the Clerk serve a copy of this Order on all parties. IT IS SO ORDERED.
