Nike’s Boies Schiller lawyers tried to address the block billing concerns in their revised request last July, writing, “[r]ather than try to estimate what portion of the work was recoverable and what was not, Nike omitted all mixed billing entries, totaling roughly $815,000.

“That is, it did not seek recovery for any billing entry that included time spent—no matter how small—on work that fell outside the scope of legal expenses recoverable under the MVRA,” according to the letter.
