JAVIER VALDEZ, Plaintiff, v. CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, Defendant.


ORDER ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE'S PROPOSED FINDINGS OF FACT AND RECOMMENDED DISPOSITION

This case comes before the Court upon the Magistrate Judge's Proposed Findings of Fact and Recommended Disposition. [Doc. 30] The Magistrate's PFF&RD addresses Plaintiff's Motion for Attorney's Fees pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act [Doc. 26]. The record reflects that more than fourteen days have elapsed since service of the PFF&RD upon Defendant and Defendant has not filed Objections to the PFF&RD. By not filing timely and specific objections, Defendant has failed to preserve any issues for de novo review by this Court. United States v. Hobbs, 73 F.3d 1057, 1060 (10th Cir. 1996). Moreover, having reviewed the PFF&RD, the Court concludes that it is neither clearly erroneous nor contrary to law.

WHEREFORE, IT HEREBY IS ORDERED that the Magistrate Judge's Proposed Findings of Fact and Recommended Disposition [Doc. 30] are adopted as the decision of the Court, Plaintiff's Motion for Attorney's Fees pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act [Doc. 26] is granted, and Plaintiff is awarded $7,360.20 in attorney fees.

So ordered this 17th day of November, 2015.
