CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of Social Security.
STEWART DALZELL, District Judge.
AND NOW, this 18th day of November, 2014, upon consideration of our September 12, 2013 order referring this matter to the Honorable Timothy R. Rice, United States Magistrate Judge, for a report and recommendation ("R&R") pursuant to the procedure for the random assignment of social security cases, Local Rule 72.1 and 28 U.S.C. §636(b)(1)(B) (docket entry # 8), the R&R filed on October 31, 2014 recommending remand, to which neither party has filed an objection within the period specified by Loc. R. Civ. P. 72.1 IV (b), and the Court agreeing with Judge Rice that plaintiff's request for remand should be granted because the Administrative Law Judge failed to adequately consider the evidence in determining plaintiff's depression was not severe,  it is hereby ORDERED that:
1. Judge Rice's report and recommendation is APPROVED and ADOPTED;
2. Plaintiff's request for review is GRANTED;
3. The matter is REMANDED to the Commissioner for further review consistent with the Report and Recommendation; and
4. The Clerk of Court shall CLOSE the case statistically.
