IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
BARRY FLEMON, Jr.
CASE NO. 3:16CV00342 PSH
NANCY A. BERRYHILL,
ACTING COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
Now before the Court is the plaintiff Barry Flemon, Jr.’s (“Flemon”) motion for attorney’s
fees pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA), 28 U.S.C. § 2412. Defendant Nancy A.
Berryhill (“Berryhill”) does not oppose the motion.
We grant the motion, approving an EAJA award in the total amount of $2,707.22 (fees in
the amount of $2,687.15 plus expenses of $20.07). We find nothing unreasonable about the hours
of work performed or the hourly rate requested. Because the award belongs to Flemon, and not his
attorney, as set forth in Astrue v. Ratliff, 130 S. Ct. 2521 (2010), the Department of Treasury shall
issue payment of this award by check made payable to Flemon, in care of his attorney, Stephanie
Bartels Wallace, and shall mail the check to Ms. Wallace at her Jonesboro, Arkansas, address.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 29th day of September, 2017.
