How to remove overlap in a polygon feature class by date?

Hello, I have a polygon feature class in a File Geodatabase with partly overlapping polygons. One of the attributes is the date in a date field. I would like to update (as in the Overlay toolset from the Analysis tools in the ArcToolbox, using 10.2.2) the geometry based on the newest polygon. In other words, to remove the overlapping area(s) from the older polygon(s). I would like to use this in a scheduled script (arcpy), but for my understanding a manual solution is also very welcome.

Can anyone help me with this? Thanks in advance.
