On order of the Court, the applications for leave to appeal the July 15, 2014 judgment of the Court of Appeals are considered, and they are GRANTED. The parties shall address: (1) whether the Disclosures bye Law Enforcement Officers Act, MCL 15.391, et seq., precludes the use of false statements by a law enforcement officer in a prosecution for obstruction of justice; and (2) whether the waivers signed by the defendants bar the use of their statements in a criminal prosecution as violative of state or federal rights against self-incrimination.
The Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan and the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan are invited to file briefs amicus curiae. Other persons or groups interested in the determination of the issues presented in this case may move the Court for permission to file briefs amicus curiae. Motions for permission to file briefs amicus curiae and briefs amicus curiae regarding these cases should be filed in People v Harris (Docket No. 149872) only.
