United States District Court, D. Oregon
November 20, 2014
CHRISTINA MYERS, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner, Social Security Administration, Defendant.
ANNA J. BROWN, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Janice M. Stewart issued Findings and Recommendation (#31) on October 24, 2014, in which she recommends this Court grant Plaintiff's Unopposed Motion (#29) for Attorneys' Fees Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 406(b). This matter is now before this Court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 72(b).
Because no objections to the Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendation were timely filed, this Court is relieved of its obligation to review the record de novo. See Dawson v. Marshall, 561 F.3d 930, 932 (9th Cir. 2009). See also United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003)( en banc ). Having reviewed the legal principles de novo, the Court does not find any error.
The Court ADOPTS Magistrate Judge Stewart's Findings and Recommendation (#31). Accordingly, the Court GRANTS Plaintiff's Unopposed Motion (#29) for Attorneys' Fees Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 406(b). Defendant shall pay attorneys' fees in the amount of $8, 001.51. Defendant shall make the payment payable to Plaintiff's attorney and mail the check to Plaintiff's attorney's office.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
