UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
August 20, 2009
JAMES P. MAGUIRE, PLAINTIFF,
JOANNE E. BARNHART, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Denis R. Hurley, United States District Judge
HURLEY, District Judge
On October 10, 2007, this Court referred plaintiff's counsel's motion for attorneys' fees to Magistrate Judge William D. Wall. On January 5, 2009, Judge Wall issued a Report and Recommendation recommending that Plaintiff's counsel be awarded $29,017.08 in attorneys' fees. No objections have been filed.
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Fed. R. Civ. P. 72, this Court has reviewed the Report and Recommendation for clear error, and finding none, now concurs in both its reasoning and its result. Accordingly, this Court adopts the January 5, 2009 Report and Recommendation of Judge Wall as if set forth herein. The Court therefore directs that plaintiff's counsel be awarded a total of $29,017.08 in attorneys' fees.
