United States District Court, D. South Carolina, Charleston Division
May 20, 2014
Marvin Eugene Palmer, Plaintiff,
Carolyn W. Colvin, Commissioner of Social Security Administration, Defendant.
DAVID C. NORTON, District Judge.
The above referenced case is before this court upon the magistrate judge's recommendation that this case be transferred to the United States District Court for the District of Western North Carolina, Charlotte Division.
This court is charged with conducting a de novo review of any portion of the magistrate judge's report to which a specific objection is registered, and may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the recommendations contained in that report. 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). However, absent prompt objection by a dissatisfied party, it appears that Congress did not intend for the district court to review the factual and legal conclusions of the magistrate judge. Thomas v. Arn , 474 U.S. 140 (1985). Additionally, any party who fails to file timely, written objections to the magistrate judge's report pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) waives the right to raise those objections at the appellate court level. United States v. Schronce , 727 F.2d 91 (4th Cir. 1984), cert. denied, 467 U.S. 1208 (1984). No objections have been filed to the magistrate judge's report and recommendation.
A de novo review of the record indicates that the magistrate judge's report accurately summarizes this case and the applicable law. Accordingly, the magistrate judge's report and recommendation is AFFIRMED, and this case is TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, Charlotte Division, Charles R. Jonas Federal Building, 401 West Trade Street, Room 210, Charlotte, North Carolina 28202. The clerk's office is directed to transmit the complete record in this case to that district.
AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
