KAREN L. LITKOVITZ, Magistrate Judge.

As discussed during the conference, time was of the essence given the need for the parties and outside counsel to make travel plans for the depositions to occur the first week of September. On August 23, 2013, the Court memorialized its Order and directed the parties and counsel for Larry Flynt to submit briefs to the Court on these issues by 5:00 p.m. on August 26, 2013.
