IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS
FORT WORTH DIVISION
DELMAR P. MONTGOMERY
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, ACTING
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY
CIVIL ACTION NO. 4:12-CV-574-Y
ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S
FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATION
On August 23, 2013, the United States magistrate judge issued his
findings, conclusions, and recommendation (“the findings”) in this case.
In the findings, the magistrate judge recommended that the Court affirm
the decision of the commissioner of the Social Security Administration
denying Plaintiff’s claim for supplemental social security income under
Title XVI of the Social Security Act.
An order issued that same day gave all parties until September 6
to serve and file with the Court written objections to the findings.
Plaintiff has filed objections and requests that the Court reject the
magistrate’s findings and render an award of benefits or, alternatively,
remand for additional administrative proceedings. The commissioner did
not file a response.
After carefully reviewing the findings, the record, the relevant
case law, and Plaintiff’s objections, applying a de novo standard of
review, the Court concludes that the findings should be, and are hereby,
ADOPTED as the findings and conclusions of this Court for the reasons
stated therein. Accordingly, the commissioner’s decision is AFFIRMED.
SIGNED September 20, 2013.
TERRY R. MEANS
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
