United States District Court, W.D. Kentucky, Louisville
March 19, 2014
JOYCE A. KEITH, Plaintiff,
CARYLON W. COLVIN, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant.
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
JOHN G. HEYBURN, II, District Judge.
Plaintiff, Joyce A. Keith, has filed this action seeking judicial review of an administrative decision of the Commissioner of Social Security, who denied her application for disability insurance and supplemental security income benefits. This Judge referred the matter to the Magistrate Judge for a report and recommendation.
The issue before the Magistrate Judge was whether the Administrative Law Judge erred (1) by determining that Ms. Keith's mental health problems did not meet or equal the requirements of a listed impairment and (2) by determining that she retained the residual functional capacity to perform sedentary work with significant restrictions, in spite of her physical impairments. The Magistrate Judge recommended that this Court affirm the decision of the Commissioner of Social Security denying benefits.
The Court has reviewed the recommendation of the Magistrate Judge and the objections filed to it. The Court concludes that the ALJ and the Magistrate Judge had ample evidence to support their conclusions.
Being otherwise sufficiently advised,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Court adopts the Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law and Recommendation of the Magistrate Judge and Plaintiff's claim is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.
This is a final and appealable order.
