decision of the Commissioner and remanded the cause under sentence four of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g)

moves for attorneys’ fees in the amount of $4,302.38 and $16.00 in expenses. On August 23, 2017,
the Commissioner filed a response indicating that she does not object to the fees and expenses sought
by Plaintiff. Accordingly,

of $4,318.38 ($4,302.38 + 16.00) to be paid in accordance with the Commissioner’s procedures set
forth in her response.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
