Elms v. Commissioner of Social Security
ORDER DENYING AS MOOT PLAINTIFF'S 37 Motion for Attorney Fees- Signed by Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen. (CCie)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
Civil Action No. 16-10180
U.S. District Judge
HON. R. STEVEN WHALEN
U.S. Magistrate Judge
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL
Before the Court is Plaintiff’s second motion for attorney fees under the Equal
Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”) [Doc. #37], filed on March 21, 2019. The motion will be
DENIED for two reasons.
First, it is untimely. Under 28 U.S.C. sec. 2412(d)(1)(B) and (d)(2)(G), an
application for fees must be submitted within 30 days of the entry of judgment. Judgment
was entered on September 18, 2017.
Secondly, the Court has, be separate Opinion and Order, already granted Plaintiff’s
first motion for EAJA fees. The present motion is therefore moot.
Accordingly, Plaintiff’s motion [Doc. #37] is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
