Wolff v. Social Security Administration
ORDER granting 20 Motion for Attorney Fees. Signed by Magistrate Judge Patricia S. Harris on 1/11/2022. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
No. 3:20-cv-00132 PSH
ACTING COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
Now before the Court is the plaintiff Ronda Wolff’s (“Wolff”) motion for
attorney’s fees pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”), 28 U.S.C. §
2412. Defendant Kilolo Kijakazi (“Kijakazi”) does not oppose the motion. T h e
motion is granted, and the EAJA award in the amount of $4,107.97 ($4,087.90 in fees
and $20.07 in expenses) is approved. There is nothing unreasonable about the hours
of work performed or the hourly rate requested. Because the award belongs to Wolff,
and not her attorney, as set forth in Astrue v. Ratliff, 560 U.S. 586 (2010), the
Department of Treasury shall issue payment of this award by check made payable to
Wolff, in care of her attorney, Stephanie Bartels Wallace, and shall mail the check to
Ms. Wallace at her Jonesboro, Arkansas, address.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 11th day of January, 2022.
