MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

PATTI B. SARIS, United States District Judge.

Non-Party Centro de los Derechos del Migrante, Inc. (CDM), which describes itself as a non-profit legal services organization, objects in part to the magistrate judge's order requiring the organization to produce privilege logs for documents sought by Defendants E.J. Amusements of New Hampshire, Inc., et al. (Docket Nos. 122, 125). Defendants issued a subpoena to CDM seeking three categories of information: research materials referring to Plaintiff Jorge Garcia that were used to prepare a report on the abuse of migrant workers in the fair and carnival industry (Category 1); CDM's communications with Garcia regarding his employment by defendants (Category 2); and CDM's correspondence relating to Garcia's attendance at a meeting with labor officials from the United States and Mexico (Category 3).

The magistrate judge denied the motions without prejudice and ordered CDM to produce a privilege log for all the documents sought. (Docket Nos. 122, 125).
