IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
June 28, 2011
SANDRA DEXTER, FOR RICHARD B. DEXTER, DECEASED, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On December 2, 2010, Sandra Dexter, for Richard B. Dexter, by and through her attorney, filed a complaint against the Commissioner of Social Security, for judicial review of an administrative agency's decision (Doc. 2). Specifically, Dexter seeks judicial review of the Commissioner's decision finding that Richard Dexter was not disabled and denying him supplemental security income.
On June 8, 2011, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B), United States Magistrate Judge Clifford J. Proud submitted a Report and Recommendation ("the Report") recommending that the Court reverse the Commissioner's final decision and remand this case to the Commissioner for rehearing and reconsideration of the evidence pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) (Doc. 23).
The Report was sent to the parties with a notice informing them of their right to appeal by way of filing "objections" by June 27, 2011. To date, none of the parties have filed objections, and the period in which to file objections has expired. Therefore, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), this Court need not conduct de novo review. Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149-52 (1985).
Thus, the Court ADOPTS the Report in its entirety (Doc. 23). The Court REMANDS this case to the Commissioner for rehearing and reconsideration of the evidence, pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 4-5(g).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
