UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
NANCY A. BERRYHILL,
Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
No. 1:15 CV 230 CDP
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before me on plaintiff’s motion for attorney’s fees pursuant to
the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. ' 2412, in the amount of $6,258.94.
Defendant does not object to the request.
On March 22, 2017, I reversed the decision of the Commissioner and
remanded the case to the Commissioner under sentence four of 42 U.S.C. ' 405(g)
for further consideration. Because plaintiff prevailed and is not otherwise
precluded from recovering attorney’s fees, I find plaintiff1 is entitled to an award in
the amount requested.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s motion for attorney’s fees 
The fees are payable to plaintiff, not plaintiff=s attorney. See Astrue v. Ratliff, 560 U.S. 586
is granted, and defendant shall pay plaintiff $6,258.94 in attorney’s fees.
