Crossley v. Social Security Administration
ORDER granting 16 motion for attorney's fees and awarding fees totaling $2,864.58 to Crossley. Signed by Magistrate Judge Patricia S. Harris on 12/05/2016. (rhm)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
MARY BETH CROSSLEY
NO. 5:15-cv-00391 PSH
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner
of the Social Security Administration
Plaintiff Mary Beth Crossley (“Crossley”) has filed the pending motion for an award
of attorney’s fees pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act. See Pleading 16. In the
motion, she seeks an award of fees in the total amount of $2,864.58. The Acting
Commissioner of the Social Security Administration has no objection to the motion.
The Court has reviewed Crossley’s motion and finds nothing unreasonable about
the hours of work performed or the hourly rate requested. The motion is granted, and
fees totaling $2,864.58 are awarded to Crossley. Because the award belongs to Crossley,
and not her attorney, see Astrue v. Ratliff, — U.S. —, 130 S.Ct. 2521, 177 L.E.2d 91
(2010), the Department of Treasury shall issue payment of this award by check made
payable to Crossley, in care of her attorney, Eric L. Worsham (“Worsham”), and shall
mail the check to Worsham at his Pine Bluff, Arkansas, address.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 5th day of December, 2016.
