Case No. 1:13CV98 CDP
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Plaintiff Terry Hounihan filed this case on July 8, 2013, appealing the denial
of his application for supplemental security income and disability insurance
benefits. After defendant Carolyn Colvin moved for remand to the Social Security
Administration, I reversed and remanded the case for further proceedings pursuant
to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. ' 405(g) on October 23, 2013.
Plaintiff now seeks attorney=s fees in the amount of $2295.00, pursuant to
the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. ' 2412. Defendant has no objection to
the payment of the amount requested. Because plaintiff prevailed and is not
otherwise precluded from recovering attorney=s fees and costs, I find that plaintiff
is entitled to an award in the amount requested.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff=s motion for attorney=s fees [#14]
is granted. Defendant shall pay plaintiff $2295.00 in attorney=s fees.
