Williams v. Social Security Administration
ORDER denying 13 Motion for Attorney Fees. Signed by Judge Kristine G. Baker on 07/31/2014. (rhm)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
GARY R. WILLIAMS
Case No. 1:12-cv-00078 KGB
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Commissioner,
Social Security Administration
Before the Court is plaintiff Gary R. Williams’s counsel’s motion for attorney’s fees
pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 406(b) (Dkt. No. 13). By prior show-cause Order, the Court directed
Mr. Williams’s counsel to inform the Court of the total amount of past-due benefits awarded to
him or to show cause as to why the percentage requirement of § 406(b)(1)(A) has otherwise been
satisfied by the pending fee petition. The Court also directed Mr. Williams’s counsel to inform
the Court whether his pending fee request includes any time spent to obtain a fee payable from
his client’s past-due benefits or to show cause as to why this requirement is otherwise satisfied.
The Court gave Mr. Williams’s counsel 14 days from the date of the prior show-cause Order to
take these actions. Mr. Williams’s counsel has not done so, and the time for doing so has passed.
Accordingly, Mr. Williams’s counsel’s motion for attorney’s fees is denied.
SO ORDERED this the 31st day of July, 2014.
