IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
JOHNNIE L. RUTH
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, Commissioner,
Social Security Administration
Ruth's motion for a reasonable attorney's fee and costs, Document No.
19, which is unopposed except for the requested hourly rate, is granted in part
and denied in part. $175.00 is, the Court concludes, the appropriate hourly
rate for 2010 and 2011, and results in a reasonable fee all material things
considered. The Court therefore awards $3540.66-$23.16 in costs and
$3,517.50 for counsel's good work. The Court directs the Commissioner to
make the check payable to Johnnie L. Ruth in care of his lawyer.
