DECISION and ORDER
DAVID N. HURD, District Judge.
Plaintiff Grover Sweeting filed this action seeking judicial review of a final decision of the Commissioner of Social Security denying his application for benefits under the Social Security Act. By Report-Recommendation dated August 6, 2013, the Honorable Christian F. Hummel, United States Magistrate Judge, recommended that the Commissioner's decision be affirmed. Plaintiff filed timely objections to the Report-Recommendation.
Based upon a de novo determination of the portions of the Report-Recommendation to which plaintiff objected, the Report-Recommendation is accepted and adopted in all respects. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
Accordingly, it is
1. The Commissioner's decision is AFFIRMED; and
2. Plaintiff's complaint is DISMISSED in its entirety.
The Clerk is directed to file a judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
