SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
Case No. 1:15-cv-198
This matter is before the Court on the Magistrate Judge’s Report and
Recommendation filed December 1, 2016 (Doc. 20).
Proper notice has been given to the parties under 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C),
including notice that the parties would waive further appeal if they failed to file
objections to the Report and Recommendation in a timely manner. See United States
v. Walters, 638 F.2d 947 (6th Cir. 1981). As of the date of this Order, no objections
to the Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation have been filed.
Having reviewed this matter de novo pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636, we find the
Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation correct.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation of the
Magistrate Judge is hereby ADOPTED. Plaintiff’s motion for attorney’s fees under
the Equal Access for Justice Act is GRANTED. Plaintiff is awarded a total sum of
$3,120.00, representing an attorney fee that reflects a reasonable number of hours (16)
at a reasonably hourly rate ($170.00), plus $400.00 in reimbursement of the filing fee.
