ORDER APPROVING AND ADOPTING MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
ROBERT HOLMES BELL, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.
On February 27, 2015, Magistrate Judge Ellen S. Carmody issued a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) (ECF No. 31) recommending that Plaintiff’s motion for attorney fees under the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. § 2412(d)(1)(A), be granted in part and denied in part.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion for Attorney Fees (ECF No. 29) is GRANTED IN PART and DENIED IN PART.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendant remit two thousand, nine hundred eighty-two dollars and fifty cents ($2, 982.50) in fees and that such be paid directly to Plaintiff.
