This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion for Award of Attorneys’ Fees
Pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. § 2412 [#28] (“Plaintiff’s
Motion”) and on the parties’ joint Motion for Order Approving Stipulation of Award of
Attorney Fees Under the Equal Access to Justice Act [#29] (the “Joint Motion”). While
Plaintiff’s Motion was pending, and before Defendant filed a Response, the parties reached
an agreement as to the amount of attorney fees to be awarded Plaintiff. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Joint Motion [#29] is GRANTED. Plaintiff is
awarded $5,200.00 in attorney’s fees and expenses from Defendant pursuant to the Equal
Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”). Payment of this amount constitutes a complete release
from and bar to any and all claims Plaintiff may have relating to EAJA fees in connection
with this action. The EAJA award is without prejudice to Plaintiff’s attorney’s right to seek
attorney fees pursuant to Social Security Act § 206(b), 42 U.S.C. § 406(b), subject to the
offset provisions of the EAJA. See 28 U.S.C. § 2412(c)(1).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion [#28] is DENIED as moot.
