Civil Action No.5:14-cv-1664-MGL
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff=s Motion for an Award of Attorney=s Fees
pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act (AEAJA@) filed August 10, 2015. See 28 U.S.C.
' 2412. The Defendant filed notice that she does not object to the requested amount of attorney
fees under the EAJA.
In accordance with Astrue v. Ratliff, 130 S.Ct 2521, 2528-29 (2010), EAJA fees awarded
by this Court belong to the litigant, thus subjecting EAJA fees to offset under the Treasury
Offset Program (31 U.S.C. ' 3716(c)(3)(B) (2006)) and, therefore, this Court directs fees be
payable to the Plaintiff and delivered to Plaintiff’s counsel. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that the Plaintiff=s motion pursuant to the EAJA is granted in the
amount of $3,375.54.
