Hampton v. Social Security Administration
ORDER granting pltf's 19 Motion for Attorney's Fees and Expenses totaling $3,570.45. Signed by Judge Susan Webber Wright on 10/11/11. (vjt)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
TOMMY LEE HAMPTON
NO. 1:10CV00106 SWW
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, Commissioner
of the Social Security Administration
On September 13, 2011, Plaintiff Tommy Lee Hampton (“Hampton”) filed a motion for an
award of attorney’s fees under the provisions of the Equal Access to Justice Act. In the motion, he
requests fees and expenses totaling $3,570.45. The Commissioner of the Social Security
Administration filed a response to the motion in which he states that he has no objection to the
amount of fees or expenses requested by Hampton.
The Court has reviewed Hampton’s motion and finds nothing unreasonable about the hours
of work performed, the hourly rate requested, or the amount of expenses requested. The motion
(docket no. 19) is granted, and fees and expenses totaling $3,570.45 are awarded to Hampton.
Because the award belongs to Hampton, and not her attorney, see Astrue v. Ratliff, ___ U.S. ___,
130 S.Ct. 2521, 177 L.E.2d 91 (2010), the Department of Treasury shall issue payment of this award
by check made payable to Hampton, in care of her attorney, Eric L. Worsham (“Worsham”), and
shall mail the check to Worsham at his Pine Bluff, Arkansas, address.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 11th day of October, 2011.
