United States District Court, Eastern District of Tennessee, Knoxville
December 31, 2014
STEVEN AUTHOR BORDEAUX, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
THOMAS A. VARLAN CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
This civil matter is before the Court on the Report and Recommendation (the “R&R”) entered by United States Magistrate Judge H. Bruce Guyton on December 10, 2014 [Doc. 34]. In the R&R, Magistrate Judge Guyton recommends that the Court grant in part plaintiff’s Application for Attorney Fees Under the Equal Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”) [Doc. 31] and award plaintiff $8, 185.74 plus $18.93 for EAJA attorney fees and expenses. There have been no timely objections to the R&R, and enough time has passed since the filing of the R&R to treat any objections as having been waived. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1); Fed.R.Civ.P. 72(b).
After a careful review of the matter, the Court is in agreement with Magistrate Judge Guyton’s recommendations, which the Court adopts and incorporates into its ruling. Accordingly, the Court ACCEPTS IN WHOLE the R&R [Doc. 34], GRANTS in part plaintiff’s Application for Attorney Fees Under the Equal Access to Justice Act [Doc. 31], and AWARDS plaintiff $8, 185.74 in attorney fees plus $18.93 in expenses, for a total of $8, 204.67.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
