See 9/2/09 Min. Order. On September 3, 2009, Plaintiff filed a response to the Court's Order, advising the Court that "Plaintiff did not file her opposition to the motion by August 31, 2009 because after analyzing the contents of Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment, Plaintiff determined that a response in opposition would not be appropriate." Pl.'s Resp. to Order of the Court Issued September 2, 2009, Docket No. . Accordingly, in light of Plaintiff's response conceding to Defendants'  Motion for Summary Judgment, the Court shall GRANT the Defendants' motion as conceded. An appropriate Order accompanies this Memorandum Opinion.
