On order of the Court, the application for leave to appeal the April 10, 2014 judgment of the Court of Appeals is considered. We direct the Clerk to schedule oral argument on whether to grant the application or take other action. MCR 7.302(H)(1). The parties shall file supplemental briefs within 42 days of the date of this order addressing: (1) whether the challenged testimony of Jacklyn Price regarding the defendant's prior sexual relationships was admissible res gestae evidence; (2) if so, whether the prosecutor was required to provide notice pursuant to MRE 404(b)(2); and (3) whether, if notice was required, any failure in this regard was prejudicial error warranting reversal. The parties should not submit mere restatements of their application papers.
