June 16, 2014
THOMAS R. BOWERS, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Defendant.
JAMES A. BEATY, Jr., District Judge.
The Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge was filed with the Court in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and, on May 12, 2014, was served on the parties in this action. Plaintiff objected to the Recommendation. [Doc. # 21.]
The Court has appropriately reviewed the portions of the Magistrate Judge's report to which objection was made and has made a de novo determination in accord with the Magistrate Judge's report. The Court therefore adopts the Magistrate Judge's Recommendation.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the Commissioner's decision finding no disability is AFFIRMED, that Plaintiff's Motion for Judgment Reversing Judgment of the Commissioner or Remanding the Cause for Rehearing [Doc. # 10] is DENIED, that Defendant's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings [Doc. # 13] is GRANTED, and that this action is DISMISSED with prejudice. A Judgment will be entered contemporaneously with this Order.
