United States District Court, D. Oregon
February 3, 2014
DEBRA L. SCHAEFER, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN COLVIN, Commissioner, Social Security Administration, Defendant.
Richard F. McGinty, McGinty & Belcher, PC, Salem, OR, Attorney for Plaintiff.
Adrian L. Brown, U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Oregon Portland, OR, Gerald J. Hill, Social Security Administration Office of the General Counsel, Seattle, WA, Attorneys for Defendant.
MARCO A. HERNANDEZ, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Jelderks issued a Findings and Recommendation (#20) on January 8, 2014, in which he recommends that the Court affirm the Commissioner's final decision. The matter is now before me pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) 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 Jelderks's Findings and Recommendation (#20). Accordingly, the Commissioner's final decision is affirmed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
