United States District Court, D. Oregon
May 11, 2015
RICHARD A. STAINBROOK, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner, Social Security Administration, Defendant.
ANNA J. BROWN, District Judge.
Magistrate Judge Janice M. Stewart issued Findings and Recommendation (#34) on April 13, 2015, in which she recommends this Court grant Plaintiff's Unopposed Motion (#31) for Attorney Fees under 42 U.S.C. 406(b) and award Plaintiff attorneys' fees pursuant to § 406(b) in the amount of $19, 128.25 less $8, 734.06 in attorneys' fees previously awarded to Plaintiff in this matter under the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. § 2412, for a total award of $10, 394.19. The 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 (#34). Accordingly, the Court GRANTS Plaintiff's Unopposed Motion (#31) for Attorney Fees under 42 U.S.C. 406(b) and AWARDS Plaintiff attorneys' fees pursuant to § 406(b) in the amount of $10, 394.19.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
