ANTHONY SAVA, Plaintiff,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant.
KENNETH M. KARAS, District Judge.
Plaintiff brought this action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) challenging the decision of the Commissioner of Social Security ("Commissioner") to deny Plaintiff's application for disability benefits. ( See Dkt. No. 2.) Plaintiff then filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings, ( see Dkt. No. 13), which Motion the Court granted, ( see Dkt. No. 29). The Clerk of Court then entered a judgment remanding the case to the Commissioner for further proceedings and closing the case. ( See Dkt. No. 30.)
Plaintiff thereafter moved for an award of attorney's fees in the amount of $15, 546.04. ( See Dkt. No. 38.) On December 10, 2013, Magistrate Judge Davison issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") recommending that this Court grant the motion in part and award attorney's fees in the amount of $10, 882.86, payable to Plaintiffs counsel. (Dkt. No. 40 at 7.) The R&R also informed the Parties that, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(c) and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b), they would have fourteen days from the receipt of the R&R to file written objections. ( See id. at 8.)
Now, approximately one month after the R&R was issued, neither Party has filed an objection. When no objections are filed, the Court reviews an R&R on a dispositive motion for clear error. See Andrews v. LeClaire, 709 F.Supp.2d 269, 271 (S.D.N.Y. 2010); Eisenberg v. New Eng. Motor Freight, Inc., 564 F.Supp.2d 224, 226 (S.D.N.Y. 2008). The Court has reviewed the R&R and the Petition, and finding no substantive error, clear or otherwise, adopts the R&R in its entirety.
