Owens v. Colvin

United States District Court, S.D. Ohio, Western Division, Dayton

January 10, 2017

RASHANIA OWENS, Plaintiff,
v.
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant.

          Sharon L. Ovington Magistrate Judge.

          DECISION AND ENTRY

          Thomas M. Rose United States District Judge.

         This case is before the Court on the parties' Joint Stipulation for an Award of Attorney Fees under the Equal Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”), 28 U.S.C. § 2412. (Doc. #12). Specifically, the parties stipulate to an award to Plaintiff of attorney fees in the amount of $2, 675.44 in full satisfaction and settlement of any and all claims Plaintiff may have under the EAJA in the above case.

If no such pre-existing debt exists, Defendant shall pay the EAJA award directly to Plaintiff's counsel pursuant to the EAJA assignment signed by Plaintiff and counsel; and

         3. The case remains terminated on the ...
