April 9, 2014
DENISE BAKER, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner, Social Security Administration,  Defendant.
RORY JOSEPH LINERUD, Linerud Law Firm, Salem, OR, Attorney for Plaintiff.
S. AMANDA MARSHALL, United States Attorney, ADRIAN L. BROWN, Assistant United States Attorney, Portland, OR, DAVID MORADO, Regional Chief Counsel, LEISA A. WOLF, L. JAMALA EDWARDS, Assistant Regional Counsel, Social Security Administration, Seattle, WA, Attorney for Defendant.
ANNA J. BROWN, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Janice M. Stewart issued Findings and Recommendation (#26) on March 10, 2014, in which she recommends this Court affirm the Commissioner's decision denying Plaintiff's application for Disability Insurance benefits under Title II of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 401-33. 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 relived of its obligation to review the record de novo. See also Dawson v. Marshall, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003) ( en banc ). Having reviewed the legal principles de novo, the Court does not find any error.
The Court ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Stewart's Findings and Recommendation (#26). Accordingly, the court AFFIRMS the Commissioner's final decision and DISMISSES this matter.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
