Judge recommends that plaintiff be awarded a reasonable fee under the Equal Access
to Justice Act ("EAJA"), 28 U.S.C. § 2412, in the amount of $5,700.00. Defendant did
not object. Upon consideration, it is hereby
ORDERED AND ADJUDGED:
The Report and Recommendation is adopted, and Plaintiff is awarded
fees in the amount of $5,700, to be paid by defendant Commissioner
within a reasonable time of this order.
The Commissioner is required to follow Astrue v. Ratliff, but make

federal debt has been made to date.
