CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner
of the Social Security Administration
Plaintiff Angela Hall (“Hall”) has filed the pending motion for an award of
attorney’s fees and other expenses under the provisions of the Equal Access to Justice
Act. See Document 16. In the motion, she seeks fees and expenses totaling $2,043.12.
The Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration has no objection to the
amount of fees and expenses requested by Hall.
The Court has reviewed Hall’s motion and finds nothing unreasonable about the
hours of work performed, the hourly rate requested, or the amount of expenses
requested. The motion is granted, and fees and expenses totaling $2,043.12 are awarded
to Hall. Because the award belongs to Hall, 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 Hall, in care of her attorney, Anthony
W. Bartels (“Bartels”), and shall mail the check to Bartels at his Jonesboro, Arkansas,
IT IS SO ORDERED this 10th day of February, 2016.
