IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS JONESBORO DIVISION CHAD GILBERT VS. PLAINTIFF NO. 3:18-cv-00198 PSH ANDREW SAUL, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION DEFENDANT ORDER Now before the Court is the plaintiff Chad Gilbert’s (“Gilbert”) motion for attorney’s fees pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA), 28 U.S.C. § 2412. Defendant Andrew Saul (“Saul”) does not oppose the motion. The Court grants the motion and approves an EAJA award in the amount of $1,619.92 (which includes $20.07 in expenses). The Court finds nothing unreasonable about the hours of work performed or the hourly rate requested. Because the award belongs to Gilbert, 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 Gilbert, 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 7th day of October, 2019. ___________________________________ UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
