Based on said document and the file herein, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that to the extent Plaintiffs seek to preclude the subpoenaed entities from complying with a valid subpoena, the objection is OVERRULED without prejudice to a proper motion for protective order or to modify the subpoenas. On its face, the objection procedure of Rule 45(c)(2)(B) are available only to the entities "commanded to produce documents or tangible things or to permit inspection," and not to Plaintiffs. Thus, the objection filed by Plaintiffs does not relieve the subpoenaed parties of their obligations pursuant to the subpoenas. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, absent agreement of all parties or further order of the court, the subpoenas referenced in the Plaintiffs' objection are STAYED until December 8, 2009, in order to allow Plaintiffs time to prepare and file a proper motion.
