THUY TRANG THI NGUYEN, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner, Social Security Administration, Defendant.
ANNA J. BROWN, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Janice M. Stewart issued Findings and Recommendation (#17) on December 19, 2013, in which she recommends this Court reverse the final decision of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration and remand this matter pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further proceedings. The matter is now before this Court 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, this Court is relieved of its obligation to review the record de novo. See also Dawson v. Marshall, 561 F.3d 930, 932 (9th Cir. 2009); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) ( en bane ). Having reviewed the legal principles de novo, the Court does not find any error.
The Court ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Stewart's Findings and Recommendation (#17). Accordingly, the Court REVERSES the decision of the Commissioner and REMANDS this matter pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) for further administrative proceedings consistent with the Findings and Recommendation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
