Gilbert v. Social Security Administration
ORDER granting 16 Motion for attorney fees and approving an EAJA award in the amount of $1,619.92. Signed by Magistrate Judge Patricia S. Harris on 10/7/2019. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
NO. 3:18-cv-00198 PSH
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
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.
