Case No. 3:10-CV-00318 JTK
MICHAEL ASTRUE, Commissioner,
Social Security Administration
Pending is Plaintiff’s Motion for Attorney’s Fees under the
Equal Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”), 28 U.S.C. § 2412 (docket
entry #16). In his motion, Plaintiff requests fees and expenses in
the amount of $3,045.37 ($3,028.75 in fees and $16.62 in expenses).
The Commissioner does not object to the amount requested (docket
entry #18). Therefore, the motion is GRANTED.
EAJA fees are payable to Plaintiff, not Plaintiff’s attorney,
and such fees are subject to an offset when the Plaintiff has
outstanding federal debts.

order of the Plaintiff, in care of his attorney, will issue to
