ORDER REGARDING MANAGEMENT OF SOCIAL SECURITY CASES

The parties are ORDERED to comply with all provisions set forth in Sixth Amended Magistrate Judges' General Order No. 11 (effective September 1, 2011). A copy of that General Order can be found on the Court's web site. To ensure that all parties are aware of, and fully comply with, the General Order, a copy of the General Order is also attached hereto.
The parties are directed to pay particular attention to ¶ 2, which requires citations to the administrative record refer to the PageID __ when the administrative record is filed electronically. Briefs which are noncompliant with this provision may be stricken.
Also, as explained more fully in General Order No. 11, motions for extensions of time - by either side - are strongly discouraged and are to be filed in only exceptional circumstances. See General Order No. 11 at & 8.
Counsel for the Commissioner is also ORDERED as follows: Prior to the filing of a Memorandum in Opposition to Plaintiff's Statement of Errors, the Commissioner's counsel shall review the administrative record (including all ALJ and Appeals Council decisions) and determine whether or not a remand is appropriate. If so, the Commissioner shall file a motion for remand in lieu of, and on or before the due date scheduled for, the Commissioner's Opposition Memorandum. All such motions for remand shall comply with S.D. Ohio Local Rule 7.3.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
