Peters v. Commissioner Social Security Administration Doc. 27 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF OREGON PENDLETON DIVISION TAMMY P.1, No. 2:17-cv-00626-YY Plaintiff, OPINION AND ORDER v. NANCY A. BERRYHILL, Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, Defendant. MOSMAN, J., On August 14, 2018, Magistrate Judge Youlee Yim You issued her Findings and Recommendation (F&R) [22], recommending that the Commissioner’s decision be affirmed. Plaintiff objected [24] and the Commissioner responded [26]. DISCUSSION The magistrate judge makes only recommendations to the court, to which any party may file written objections. The court is not bound by the recommendations of the magistrate judge, but retains responsibility for making the final determination. The court is generally required to 1 In the interest of privacy, this opinion uses only the first name and the initial of the last name of the non-governmental party or parties in this case. Where applicable, this opinion uses the same designation for a non-governmental party’s immediate family member(s). 1 – OPINION AND ORDER make a de novo determination regarding those portions of the report or specified findings or recommendation as to which an objection is made. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). However, the court is not required to review, de novo or under any other standard, the factual or legal conclusions of the magistrate judge as to those portions of the F&R to which no objections are addressed. See Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149 (1985); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003). While the level of scrutiny under which I am required to review the F&R depends on whether or not objections have been filed, in either case, I am free to accept, reject, or modify any part of the F&R. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C). Upon review, I agree with Judge You’s recommendation and I ADOPT the F&R [22] in full. The Commissioner’s decision is AFFIRMED. IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 day of September, 2018.
