IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF MONTANA MISSOULA DIVISION JILL C. ULRICK, CV 14–85–M–DLC Plaintiff, ORDER vs. CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Commissioner of Social Security Administration, Defendant. Plaintiff Jill C. Ulrick moves for attorney’s fees pursuant to the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. §406(b). Plaintiff requests fees in the amount of $12,002.29, less $8,552.70 in fees previously authorized by the Court, for a total amount of $3,449.59, representing 63.15 hours at the hourly rate of $190.06. Though Defendant initially indicated she would object to this amount, on April 3, 2017, a response was filed where Defendant stated she “has given substantive consideration to the merits of Plaintiff’s request and found no basis to object.” (Doc. 19 at 2.) Because Defendant does not object and because the Court finds this amount to be reasonable, Plaintiff’s motion will be granted. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion for Attorney’s Fees is GRANTED. Plaintiff is awarded attorney fees under 42 U.S.C. § 406(b) in the -1- amount of $3,449.59. Dated this 19th day of April, 2017. -2-
