                                                                                             1023895.1
                    Summary of Application for the Compensation Period

       5.      By this Application, and in accordance with the Interim Compensation Order,

Miller & Chevalier requests approval of the Interim Compensation Amount for the

Compensation Period.

       6.      As described in greater detail in Miller & Chevalier's Retention Application,

Miller & Chevalier is owed prepetition amounts for legal services provided in three tax refund

cases (the "Tax Cases"). Miller & Chevalier has not been paid those prepetition amounts.

Washington Mutual, Inc. in three tax refund cases (the "Tax Cases"). The Retention Order

which it is seeking compensation for or on behalf of the Debtors. Miller & Chevalier did not

Chevalier has received no payment and no promises for payment from any source for services

rendered or to be rendered in any capacity whatsoever in connection with the matters covered by

other person (other than the partners of Miller & Chevalier) for the sharing of compensation to

be received for services rendered in these cases.

                                                                                               1023895.1
                                         Fee Statements

       9.      Subject to redaction where necessary to preserve the attorney-client privilege,

Miller & Chevalier's fee statements for the Compensation Period are attached hereto as

Exhibit A, as further described below. These statements contain daily time logs describing the

time spent by each Miller & Chevalier attorney for this period.

 Summary of Services Rendered by Miller & Chevalier During the Compensation Period

       10.     This is the Twelfth Monthly Fee Application for interim compensation that

Miller & Chevalier has filed with the Court in this case. During the Compensation Period,

Miller & Chevalier provided significant professional services to the Debtors regarding the Tax

Cases. Those Tax Cases are as follows:

                   • Washington Mutual, Inc., as Successor in Interest to H.F. Ahmanson &
                   Co. and Subsidiaries v. United States, involving tax years 1990, 1992, and
                   1993, which was commenced in October 2006 in the United States District
                   Court for the Western District of Washington (CV06-1550);

                   • Washington Mutual Inc., as Successor in Interest to H.F. Ahmanson & Co.
                   and Subsidiaries; Washington Mutual Bank, a Federal Association, as
                   Successor in Interest to Home Savings of America; and Savings ofAmerica,
                   Inc., as Substitute Agentfor HF. Ahmanson & Co. and Subsidiaries v. United
                   States (08-211), which was commenced in 2008 in the U.S. Court of Federal
                   Claims and involves tax years 1991 and 1994; and

                   • Washington Mutual, Inc., as Successor in Interest to HF. Ahmanson &
                   Co. and Subsidiaries; Washington Mutual Bank, a Federal Association, as
                   Successor in Interest to Home Savings ofAmerica; and Savings ofAmerica,
                   Inc., as Substitute Agent for HF. Ahmanson & Co. and Subsidiaries v. United
                   States (08-321), which was commenced in 2008, involves tax years 1995 and
                   1998, and is pending in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

In the first case, Miller & Chevalier continued work on the appeal of the trial court's order

granting summary judgment. This involved the preparation and filing of the notice of appeal and

mediation questionnaire for the Ninth Circuit. In addition to the Tax Cases, Miller & Chevalier's

general counsel, who is also a litigator, worked to submit the prior fee applications for work


                                                 7
                                                                                                1023895.1
performed for Debtors from November 1,2009 through November 30, 2009, and for the third

interim fee statement which included, among other things, preparing Miller & Chevalier's bill

and filings with the Bankruptcy Court and participation in a court hearing. The fee statement at

Exhibit A includes the time descriptions for all of Miller & Chevalier's work on these matters.

In the second two cases, Miller & Chevalier continued to work with co-counsel on coordination

of the substitution of counsel for all the plaintiffs and on litigation strategy and discovery for the

Debtors. The fee statement at Exhibit B includes the time descriptions for all of Miller &

Chevalier's work on these matters.

        II.    Exhibit A and B are Miller & Chevalier's itemized time records for attorneys

performing services for the Debtors during the Compensation Period. During the Compensation

Period, Miller & Chevalier billed the debtors for time expended by attorneys based on hourly

rates ranging from $600 to $850 per hour. The professional services performed by Miller &

Chevalier on the Debtors' behalf during the Compensation Period required an aggregate

expenditure of 82.40 recorded hours by Miller & Chevalier's personnel. Of the aggregate time

expended, 37.90 recorded hours were expended by members and 44.50 hours were expended by

an associate. Miller & Chevalier's blended hourly rate for attorney services provided during the

Compensation Period was $677.51.

        12.     The fees charged by Miller & Chevalier as set forth in Exhibits A and B are billed

in accordance with Miller & Chevalier's existing billing rates and procedures in effect during the

Compensation Period. The rates Miller & Chevalier charges for the services rendered by its

attorneys and legal assistants in this Chapter II case are the same as the rates Miller & Chevalier

charges for those services in comparable non-bankruptcy-related matters in a competitive




                                                   8
                                                                                                 1023895.1
national legal market. Miller & Chevalier minimized fees by using a small core team to render

its tax litigation services.

        l3.     Miller & Chevalier certifies that it has reviewed the requirements of Local Rule

2016-2 and that this Application and all entries itemized in Miller & Chevalier's time records

comply with that Rule including, without limitation, (i) a descriplion of each activity or service

that each individual performed, and (iii) the number of hours (in increments of one-tenth of an

hour) spent by each individual providing the services. In accordance with Local Rule 2016-

2(d)(x), all activity descriptions in the Exhibits are presented chronologically.

        14.      All services described above and in the Exhibits performed by Miller & Chevalier

were necessary and appropriate to the administration of this case. The professional services

performed by Miller & Chevalier were in the best interest ofthe Debtors and other parties in

interest. Compensation for those services as requested is commensurate with the complexity,

importance, and time-sensitive nature of the problems, issues, or tasks involved. The

professional services were performed expeditiously and in an efficient marmer.

        15.      In accordance with the factors enumerated in Section 330 ofthe Bankruptcy

Code, the amount of fees requested is fair and reasonable given: (a) the complexity of the case;

(b) the time expended; (c) the nature and extent of the services rendered; (d) the value of such

services; (d) Miller & Chevalier's expertise in the area of tax litigation; and (f) the costs of

comparable services other than in a case under the Bankruptcy Code.

                      Actual and Necessary Expenses of Miller & Chevalier

        16.      Miller & Chevalier did incur reimbursable expenses in providing professional

services during the Compensation Period in the amount of$14.20 for telephone and copying

charges.

                                                                                                   1023895.1
                                                                                                            .,
                                                                                                            ,




                        The Requested Compensation Should Be Allowed

        17.     Section 331 of the Bankruptcy Code provides for interim compensation of

professionals and incorporates the substantive standards of Section 330 of the Bankruptcy Code

to govern the Court's award of such compensation. 11 U.S.C. § 331. Section 330 of the

Bankruptcy Code provides that a court may award a professional employed under Section 327 of

the Bankruptcy Code "reasonable compensation for actual, necessary services rendered ... and

reimbursement for actual, necessary expenses." Id. § 330(a)(I)(A)-(B). Section 330 ofthe

Bankruptcy Code also sets forth the criteria for the award of such compensation and

reimbursement.

        18.     In the instant case, Miller & Chevalier respectfully submits the professional

services for which it seeks compensation and the expenditures for which it seeks reimbursement

in this Application were necessary for and beneficial to the Debtors' ongoing tax litigation

matters. Such services and expenditures were necessary to and in the best interests ofthe

Debtors' estates and creditors. Miller & Chevalier further submits the compensation requested

herein is reasonable in light of the nature, extent, and value of such services to the Debtors, their

estates, and all parties in interest.

        19.     Whenever possible, Miller & Chevalier has sought to minimize the costs of its

services to the Debtors by leanly staffing the matters. The vast majority of the work on the first

case was done by one member and one associate. All of the work on the second two cases was

done by two members and an associate.

        20.      The attorneys at Miller & Chevalier worked on these tax cases in conjunction

with attorneys at Shearman & Sterling LLP. There was no duplication of work between the two

firms. The Miller & Chevalier tax litigation attorneys and the attorneys at Shearman & Sterling



                                                  10
                                                                                                1023895.1
have worked together on these cases since their inception and continue to cooperate to work

these cases in the most efficient manner possible.

       21.     In sum, the services rendered by Miller & Chevalier were necessary and

beneficial to the Debtors' estates and were consistently performed in a timely manner

commensurate with the complexity, importance, and nature of the issues involved, and approval

ofthe compensation for professional services sought herein is warranted.



                                           Reservation

       22.     To the extent time or disbursement charges for services rendered or disbursements

incurred relate to the Compensation Period but were not processed prior to the preparation of this

Application, or Miller & Chevalier has for any other reason not sought compensation or

reimbursement of expenses here with respect to any services rendered or expenses incurred

during the Compensation Period, Miller & Chevalier reserves the right to request additional

compensation for such services and reimbursement of such expenses in a future application.
