award of $6,533.92 in attorney’s fees plus costs of $350.00.
The Court has reviewed the motion and memorandum of Plaintiff, as well as the
supporting underlying documentation, and finds that the total fee request, hours expended and
hourly rates are reasonable and authorized under applicable law. Gisbrecht v. Barnhart, 535
