WILLIAM MAXWELL O/B/O GAIL A. MAXWELL-CLEMENTS, DECEASED, Plaintiff
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant
Christopher C. Conner, Chief Judge.
AND NOW, this 27th day of May, 2015, this upon consideration of the report (Doc 16) of Magistrate Judge Gerald B Cohn recommending the court dismiss the appeal (Doc 1) of plaintiff William Maxwell on behalf of Gail A Clements-Maxwell from the decision of the administrative law judge (“ALJ”) denying her application for disability insurance benefits and supplemental security income and following an independent review of the record the court being in full agreement with Judge Cohn that the ALJ's decision is supported by substantial evidence see 42 USC § 405(g) (“The findings of the [Commissioner] as to any fact if supported by substantial evidence shall be conclusive”); see also Fargnoli v Massanari 247 F.3d 34 38 (3d Cir 2001) (“Where findings of fact are supported by substantial evidence [the district court] is bound by those findings even if [the court] would have decided the factual inquiry differently.”), and the court noting that plaintiff filed objections (Doc. 17) to the report, and the Commissioner of Social Security filed a response (Doc. 18), and the court finding Judge Cohn's analysis to be thorough, well-reasoned, and fully supported by the record, and the court further finding plaintiff's objections to be without merit and squarely addressed by the report, it is hereby ORDERED that:
2. Plaintiff's appeal (Doc. 1) from the decision of the Commissioner of Social Security is DISMISSED.
