KATRINA ROSANNE WEAR, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
MARCO A. HERNANDEZ, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Sullivan issued a Findings and Recommendation (#16) on November 6, 2013, in which she recommends that this Court reverse the Commissioner's decision and remand the case for additional proceedings. The matter is now before me pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b).
Because no objections to the Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendation were timely filed, I am relieved of my obligation to review the record de novo. United States v. Reyna-Tapia , 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) (en banc); see also United States v. Bernhardt , 840 F.2d 1441, 1444 (9th Cir. 1988) ( de novo review required only for portions of Magistrate Judge's report to which objections have been made). Having reviewed the legal principles de novo, I find no error.
The Court ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Sullivan's Findings & Recommendation . Accordingly, the Commissioner's decision is reversed and remanded for additional proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
