On order of the Court, the application for leave to appeal the July 22, 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 35 days of the date of this order addressing whether it is more probable than not that the failure to properly instruct the jury regarding evidence of the defendant's good character was outcome determinative. The parties should not submit mere restatements of their application papers.
