The Michigan Supreme Court denied 11 applications for leave, and remanded three matters to the Court of Appeals or trial court.

In Michigan Insurance Company v. National Liability & Fire Insurance Company, the Supreme Court summarily reversed the Court of Appeals' holding that an adult foster care home resident was covered on the home's no-fault insurance policy, because it determined that the resident was not a "relative" of the home under the policy.

In Parks v. Department of Corrections, the Supreme Court summarily reversed the Court of Appeals in lieu of granting leave, and remanded the matter for reinstatement of the plaintiff-parolee's habeas corpus complaint. In that matter, MDOC rescinded an order of discharge from parole after determining it had miscalculated the parolee's credit, and the Supreme Court confirmed that the MDOC does not have the power of rescission once the discharge is delivered.
