DECISION & ORDER
This matter brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 was referred to the Hon. Therese Wiley Dancks, United States Magistrate Judge, for a Report-Recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Local Rule 72.3(c).
No objections to the September 21, 2012 Report-Recommendation were raised. After examining the record, this Court has determined that the Report-Recommendation is not subject to attack for plain error or manifest injustice. Accordingly, this Court adopts the Report-Recommendation for the reasons stated therein.
It is, therefore, ORDERED that (1) the matter be remanded for a proper determination of Plaintiff's Residual Functioning Capacity considering any physical non-exertional limitations; (2) the Administrative Law Judge ('ALJ") shall obtain the opinion of a vocational expert if Plaintiff's non-exertional limitations present significant limitations; and (3) all other determinations made by the ALJ be affirmed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
