NO. 3:20CV00070-JMV ANDREW SAUL, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY DEFENDANT ORDER BEFORE THE COURT are Plaintiff’s Motion for Award of Attorney Fees Pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”), 28 U.S.C. § 2412(d), [25] and the Commissioner’s response [26]. For the reasons stated in Plaintiff’s motion, and hearing no objection from Defendant, the Court finds Plaintiff’s request for attorney fees and expenses is reasonable, and the request for reimbursement for costs is well taken. Accordingly, it is ORDERED that Plaintiff’s motion with respect to attorney fees and expenses is granted, and Plaintiff is awarded $5,211.08 in attorney fees and $20.85 in additional expenses. It is further ORDERED that Plaintiff is awarded $400.00 as reimbursement for costs. However, consistent with Astrue v. Ratliff, 130 S. Ct. 2521 (2010), the EAJA award check should be made payable to Plaintiff for the benefit of his counsel and mailed to counsel pursuant to customary practice. SO ORDERED this 16th day of February, 2021. /s/ Jane M. Virden United States Magistrate Judge
