IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
TANDY L. AMBURGEY
CASE NO. 4:15-CV-04053
Commissioner, Social Security Administration
Before the Court is the Report and Recommendation filed on January 30, 2017, by the
Honorable Barry A. Bryant, United States Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Arkansas.
(ECF No. 26). Judge Bryant recommends that Plaintiff’s Application for Attorney’s Fees Pursuant
to the Equal Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”) (ECF No. 21) be granted. The parties have not filed
objections to the Report and Recommendation and the time to object has passed. See 28 U.S.C. §
Accordingly, the Court adopts the Report and Recommendation in toto. The Court finds that
Plaintiff is entitled to compensation under the EAJA in the amount of $7,784.20. This award
represents 39.70 attorney hours at an hourly rate of $186.00 for work performed and $400.00 in
costs. This amount should be paid in addition to, and not out of, any past due benefits which
Plaintiff may be awarded in the future.
The parties are reminded that the award herein under the EAJA will be taken into account at
such time as a reasonable fee is determined pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 406 in order to prevent double
recovery by counsel for Plaintiff.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 21st day of February, 2017.
