White v. Social Security Administration
ORDER granting 18 MOTION for Attorney Fees. Attorney's fees and other expenses in the total amount of $2,256.07 are awarded White. Signed by Magistrate Judge Patricia S. Harris on 9/5/2017. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
NO. 3:16-cv-00261 PSH
NANCY A. BERRYHILL, Acting Commissioner
of the Social Security Administration
Plaintiff Angela White (“White”) 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 Docket Entry 18. In the motion, she seeks attorney’s fees and expenses in the
total amount of $2,256.07. The Acting Commissioner of the Social Security
Administration (“Commissioner”) has no objection to White’s motion.
The Court has reviewed the motion for an award of attorney’s fees and other
expenses and finds nothing unreasonable about the hours of work performed, the hourly
rate, or the expenses incurred. The motion is granted, and attorney’s fees and expenses
in the total amount of $2,256.07 are awarded White. Because the award belongs to
White 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 White, in care of her attorney, Stephanie Bartels Wallace (“Wallace”), and
shall mail the check to Wallace at her Jonesboro, Arkansas, address.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 5th day of September, 2017.
