Reynolds v. Social Security Administration

United States District Court, Western District of Virginia, Danville Division

May 22, 2015

SANDRA F. REYNOLDS, Plaintiff,
v.
SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION, Defendant.

ORDER

HON. JACKSON L. KISER, JUDGE

Before me is the Report and Recommendation 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. 14] and dismissing this case.
