The challenges will include whether searches of Avenatti’s electronic devices and other property were carried out legally.
Another Tuesday hearing scheduled over allegations he defrauded porn star Stormy Daniels was postponed. That case in which Avenatti is accused of pocketing several hundred thousand dollars paid to Daniels as part of a book deal is proceeding before a different federal judge.
Avenatti was charged in March with trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to go public with claims that the sportwear company was facilitating improper payouts to promising young athletes and their families.
Avenatti gained fame representing Daniels over a nondisclosure deal regarding an alleged affair with President Donald Trump.
He also faces federal fraud charges in California.
