United States District Court, E.D. Missouri, Eastern Division
July 21, 2014
TIMOTHY M. EGAN, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
CHARLES A. SHAW, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court pursuant to the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Terry I. Adelman filed July 3, 2014. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b). The Magistrate Judge recommended that the Court grant plaintiff's request to reverse the decision of the Commissioner and order a new hearing, because the Administrative Law Judge violated plaintiff's due process rights by providing less than a full and fair hearing, and by stopping the hearing and failing to reconvene it at a later date. Neither party has filed an objection to the recommendation.
After careful review of the matter, the Court concurs with the recommendation of the Magistrate Judge that the Commissioner's decision in this matter should be reversed pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g), and this case remanded for a new hearing on plaintiff's application for Disability Income Benefits under Title II of the Social Security Act.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge is sustained, adopted and incorporated herein. [Doc. 23]
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the decision of the Commissioner is REVERSED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g), this case is REMANDED to the Commissioner for a new hearing.
An appropriate judgment of remand will accompany this order.
