such Recommendations should be adopted as modified.
Accordingly, plaintiff’s motion for an award of attorney’s fees under 42 U.S.C. §406(b) (Doc.

Counsel is awarded a total of $8,460.00 for the 11.75 hours of work performed in this Court,
subject to an offset of $2,250.00 of the EAJA fee previously awarded.
