IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
NO. 3:14-cv-00303 PSH
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner
of the Social Security Administration
Plaintiff Clarence Thomason (“Thomason”) has filed the pending motion for an
award of attorney’s fees. See Document 18. In the motion, he seeks attorney’s fees
totaling $5,752.85. The Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration has no
objection to the amount of fees requested by Thomason.
The Court has reviewed Thomason’s motion and finds nothing unreasonable about
the hours of work performed or the hourly rate requested. The motion is granted, and
attorney’s fees totaling $5,752.85 are awarded to Thomason. Because the award belongs
to Thomason, and not his 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 Thomason, in care of his attorney, David Jerome Throesch (“Throesch”),
and shall mail the check to Throesch at his Pocahontas, Arkansas, address.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 17th day of December, 2015.
