United States District Court, S.D. Indiana, Evansville Division
May 26, 2015
PAUL DAVID DIMMETT, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
ENTRY ON MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
RICHARD L. YOUNG, Chief District Judge.
Plaintiff, Paul Dimmett, who is proceeding pro se, filed a request for judicial review of the final decision of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration denying his application for Supplemental Security Income under Title XVI of the Social Security Act. The court referred the matter to the Magistrate Judge, who concluded that the ALJ did not commit reversible error and recommended that the court affirm the ALJ's decision (Filing No. 28). The Magistrate Judge also recommended that the court deny the Plaintiff's Motion for Default Judgment and that the court deny the Plaintiff's Motion to Reconsider the Court's Order Denying Plaintiff's Request for Court Order to Submit an Affidavit or Appearance. Plaintiff objects to all three rulings; the Commissioner did not respond.
Plaintiff's objection raises these same arguments that were raised and rejected by the Magistrate Judge in a thorough and well-reasoned opinion. The court finds no reason to reverse or otherwise modify his opinion. Accordingly, the court ADOPTS the Magistrate Judge's Report and Recommendation (Filing No. 28), AFFIRMS the ALJ's decision denying benefits, DENIES Plaintiff's Motion for Default Judgment (Filing No. 11), and DENIES Plaintiff's Motion to Reconsider the Court's Order Denying Plaintiff's Request for Court Order to Submit an Affidavit or Appearance (Filing No. 22).
