Steven Dexter v. Michael J. Astrue

February 22, 2012

STEVEN DEXTER, PLAINTIFF,
v.
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Richard A. Lazzara United States District Judge

ORDER

This cause is before the Court on the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Douglas N. Frazier recommending that the decision of Defendant denying Plaintiff's application for a period of disability, disability insurance benefits, and Supplemental Security Income benefits be affirmed.*fn1 Plaintiff has filed an objection to which Defendant has responded.*fn2 The Court has undertaken a de novo review of the record in conjunction with the specific objection lodged by Plaintiff to the Report and Recommendation - the magistrate judge failed to properly consider the medical opinion of Dr. John Burke, Ph. D. - as required by Eleventh Circuit precedent.*fn3

After doing so, the Court is of the opinion that the Report and Recommendation is due to be adopted, confirmed, and approved in all respects because Plaintiff's objection has no merit in the face of the record and Defendant's decision is supported by substantial evidence.

Accordingly, it is ordered and adjudged as follows:

1) The Report and Recommendation of the magistrate judge (Dkt. 23) is adopted, confirmed, and approved in all respects and made a part of this order for all purposes, including appellate review.

2) Defendant's decision is affirmed.

3) The Clerk is directed to enter judgment for Defendant and to close this case.
