PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN, Plaintiff-Appellee,
HEATHER LYNN PEER, Defendant-Appellant
COA: 322550. Gladwin CC: 13-006882-FH.
Robert P. Young, Jr., Chief Justice. Stephen J. Markman, Mary Beth Kelly, Brian K. Zahra, Bridget M. McCormack, David F. Viviano, Richard H. Bernstein, Justices.
On order of the Court, the application for leave to appeal the August 28, 2014 order of the Court of Appeals is considered and, pursuant to MCR 7.302(H)(1), in lieu of granting leave to appeal, we REMAND this case to the Court of Appeals for reconsideration of the defendant's issue regarding the Gladwin Circuit Court's assessment of court costs. On remand, the Court of Appeals shall hold this case in abeyance pending its decision in People v Konopka (Court of Appeals Docket No. 319913). After Konopka is decided, the Court of Appeals shall reconsider the defendant's issue in light of People v Cunningham, 496 Mich. 145; 852 N.W.2d 118 (2014), MCL 769.1k (as amended effective 10/17/14), and Konopka. It shall then deny or grant the application on this issue, or otherwise exercise its authority under MCR 7.216(A)(7).
