The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gershon, United States District Judge
I have carefully reviewed the objections to Magistrate Judge Go's order of September 7, 2005, which denied the Millers' motion to compel non-party witness Gail Zucker to answer certain deposition questions to which she asserted a Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination. Upon that review, I now find the objections to be without merit and affirm Judge Go's order. Judge Go correctly analyzed the issues of waiver raised by the Millers and correctly applied the law to the facts presented here.
