UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
JODY D. TERWILLIGER,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
Acting Commissioner of Social Security, )
Case No. 2:14 CV 18 CDP
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Plaintiff Jody D. Terwilliger filed this case on February 12, 2014, appealing
the denial of her application for supplemental security income benefits. On March
31, 2015, after briefing from both parties, I reversed and remanded the case for
further proceedings pursuant to sentence four of 42 U.S.C. ' 405(g).
Terwilliger now seeks attorney=s fees in the amount of $3232.87, 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 Terwilliger prevailed and is not
otherwise precluded from recovering attorney=s fees and costs, I find that she is
entitled to an award in the amount requested.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff=s motion for attorney=s fees [#26]
is GRANTED. Defendant shall pay plaintiff $3232.87 in attorney=s fees.
