MSC Order List: July 24, 2012

On July 24, 2012, the Michigan Supreme Court held the application for leave to appeal in the criminal case of People v. Ferguson, No. 145127, in abeyance because it believed that the cases of People v. Glenn, No. 144979, and People v. Hardy, No. 144327 pending before the Supreme Court may resolve issues in the present application. Thus, the present application is held in abeyance pending the decisions in those cases.

The Michigan Supreme Court also considered the application in the case of People v. Long, No. 144990 and remanded it to the Court of Appeals for consideration as on leave granted. Additionally, the Court vacated the Court of Appeals' decision in the case of People v. Anderson, No. 143339, and remanded it to the Court of Appeals for consideration in light of the Supreme Court's recent decisions in People v. Kolanek and People v. King regarding the Michigan Marihuana Act. The Court also dismissed one criminal appeal based upon the death of the defendant, denied four motions for reconsideration, and denied one hundred and seventy-one applications for leave to appeal.
