CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
ORDER GRANTING EAJA FEES
Magistrate Judge Nina Y. Wang
This Court, having reviewed the parties’ Stipulated Motion for an Award of Attorney Fees
Pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”), 28 U.S.C. § 2412(d) [#28], and being fully
apprised in its premises, IT IS ORDERED that:
The Stipulated Motion for an Award of Attorney Fees is GRANTED.
Defendant will pay $4,275.00 of attorney fees to Plaintiff pursuant to the EAJA. It is
further ordered that if, after receiving the Court’s EAJA fee order, the Commissioner (1) determines
upon effectuation of the Court’s EAJA fee order that Plaintiff does not owe a debt that is subject to
offset under the Treasury Offset Program, and (2) agrees to waive the requirements of the AntiAssignment Act, the fees will be made payable to Plaintiff’s attorney. However, if there is a debt
owned under the Treasury Offset Program, the Commissioner cannot agree to waive the requirements
of the Anti-Assignment Act, and the remaining EAJA fees after offset will be paid by a check made
out to Plaintiff but delivered to Plaintiff’s attorney.
