United States District Court, W.D. Virginia, Danville Division
April 20, 2015
DAVID LOWERY, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
JACKSON L. KISER, Senior District Judge.
Before me is the Report and Recommendation ("R & R") of the United States Magistrate Judge recommending that I enter an Order granting the Commissioner's Motion for Summary Judgment [ECF No. 15], denying Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgment [ECF No. 12], and dismissing this case. This Report was filed on December 1, 2014. Plaintiff filed an objection to the R&R, to which the Commissioner did not respond. I have reviewed de novo those portions of the Record to which Plaintiff has objected, and have reviewed the rest of the Record for clear error. For the reasons stated in the accompanying Memorandum Opinion, it is ORDERED and ADJUDGED that Plaintiff's Objection is OVERRULED, and the Report and Recommendation shall be, and hereby is, ADOPTED. The Commissioner's Motion for Summary Judgment is GRANTED, Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgment/Motion to Remand is DENIED, the final decision of the Commissioner is AFFIRMED, and this case is hereby DISMISSED.
The Clerk is directed to send a copy of this Order to all counsel of record as well as to Magistrate Judge Hoppe, and to dismiss this case from the Court's docket.
