Case No. 18-10503
ORDER AND OPINION ACCEPTING THE MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S AUGUST 16 , 2018 REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION 
Currently before the Court is the magistrate judge's August 16, 2018 report and recommendation  on cross-motions for summary judgment. The Court is fully advised in the premises and has reviewed the record and the pleadings. Neither party has filed objections. "[T]he failure to object to the magistrate judge's report releases the Court from its duty to independently review the matter." Hall v. Rawal, 09-10933, 2012 WL 3639070, at *1 (E.D.Mich. Aug. 24, 2012) (citation omitted). The Court nevertheless agrees with the magistrate judge's recommendation. The Court therefore ACCEPTS and ADOPTS the magistrate judge's report and recommendation.
It is further ordered that Defendant Commissioner's Motion for Summary Judgment  is GRANTED and Plaintiff Romine's Motion for Summary Judgment  is DENIED, and the Administrative Law Judge's decision is AFFIRMED.
