United States District Court, N.D. New York
January 15, 2015
CATHERINE M. FARINA, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Commissioner of Social Security Administration, Defendant.
THOMAS J. McAVOY, Senior District Judge.
This matter was referred to the Hon. Christian F. Hummel, United States Magistrate Judge, for a Report and Recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Rule 72.3(d) of the Local Rules of the Northern District of New York. In a Report-Recommendation and Order dated September 3, 2014 (dkt. # 16), Magistrate Judge Hummel recommended that Farina's motion for judgment on the pleadings (dkt. No. 13) be DENIED and the Commissioner's decision finding no disability be AFFIRMED (dkt. # 16, p. 27). No objections to the Report and Recommendation have been lodged and the time for filing objections has expired.
After examining the record, this Court has determined that the Report and Recommendation is not subject to attack for plain error or manifest injustice. Accordingly, this Court adopts the Report and Recommendation for the reasons stated therein.
Therefore, Defendant's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings is GRANTED and Plaintiff's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings is DENIED. The Commissioner's decision denying disability benefits is AFFIRMED for the reasons stated in Magistrate Judge Hummel's recommendation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
