IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 13, 2011
JOHN G. YATES, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Stiehl, District Judge
This matter is before the Court on the Report and Recommendation ("R & R") of United States Magistrate Judge Clifford J. Proud (Doc. 26). The R & R concludes that the Administrative Law Judge's decision, denying plaintiff John G. Yates Disability Insurance Benefits and Supplemental Security Insurance, is supported by substantial evidence in the record as a whole and that no errors of law were made. Accordingly, the R & R recommends that the Court affirm the final decision of the Commissioner finding that plaintiff is not disabled. Objections to the R & R were due by July 11, 2011. To date, plaintiff has not filed an objection. 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).
Upon review of the record, the Court ADOPTS the R & R (Doc. 26) in its entirety. This action is hereby DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
WILLIAM D. STIEHL DISTRICT JUDGE
