Ulrick v. Colvin
ORDER granting 18 Motion for Attorney Fees. Signed by Chief Judge Dana L. Christensen on 4/19/2017. (dle)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF MONTANA
JILL C. ULRICK,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
Commissioner of Social Security
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
amount of $3,449.59.
Dated this 19th day of April, 2017.
