In In re Recommendation of Judicial Tenure Commission, No. 139830, the Michigan Supreme Court remanded to the Judicial Tenure Commission and directed the Commission to file a supplemental report within 56 days, stating the substance of the allegations contained in the request for investigation that was dismissed as part of the settlement agreement and how the matters were brought to the Commission’s attention.

The Court remanded in lieu of appeal in People v. Grubbs, No. 139828, for correction of the defendant’s sentence to reflect 33-days’ sentence credit.

In Newell v. Allan, No. 139766, in lieu of granting leave to appeal, the Court reversed the portion of the Court of Appeals’ decision that reversed the trial court’s grant of summary disposition. The Court stated there was sufficient information in the search warrant affidavit to establish probable cause to issue the warrant even if the allegedly false statements were excluded.

The Court ordered the Alger County Prosecuting Attorney to respond to the application for leave to appeal in People v. Gatiss, No. 139628, to address several issues.

The Court also denied leave to appeal in eight cases.
