See Rec. Doc. 30. Pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. § 2412(d) (“EAJA”), plaintiff moved for an award of attorney fees. See Rec. Doc. 32. A memorandum with attached documentation in support of his request for attorneys’ fees was included with the motion. See Rec. Docs. 32-3 & 32-4. The Commissioner has filed a response that she does not object to the award of the requested attorney fees. See Rec. Doc. 34. Upon review of the memorandum and in consideration of the requirements for awards of attorneys’ fees under 28 U.S.C. § 2412(d), and finding that the requested amount is a reasonable award of EAJA fees, the Court now grants the award of attorneys’ fees as requested. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the plaintiff’s attorney, William R. Mustian, III is awarded fees in the amount of $2,295.00 [TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED NINETY-FIVE DOLLARS AND ZERO CENTS] to be paid by the defendant.
