United States District Court, N.D. Alabama, Jasper Division
March 30, 2015
PEGGY ANN LEE, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
SHARON LOVELACE BLACKBURN, District Judge.
On December 15, 2014, the Magistrate Judge filed a Report and Recommendation, recommending that the Administrative Law Judge's ("ALJ") decision finding that plaintiff was not disabled be reversed with instructions for the Secretary to award plaintiff benefits. (Doc. 10 at 15.) The parties were allowed fourteen days in which to file objections to the recommendations made by the Magistrate Judge, ( id. ), and on December 29, 2014, defendant filed objections to the Report and Recommendation, (Doc. 12).
After careful consideration of the record in this case, the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation, and defendant's objections, the court hereby SUSTAINS defendant's objections. The court accepts the Report and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge to the extent it recommends that the judgment of the ALJ be reversed but not to the extent it recommends awarding benefits. This case is due to be remanded with instructions for the ALJ to reevaluate the medical evidence.
