On order of the Court, the motion for reconsideration of this Court's March 6, 2015 order is considered, and it is GRANTED in part. On reconsideration, we VACATE that part of the March 6, 2015 order stating that " [t]rial court proceedings are stayed pending the completion of this appeal." We MODIFY the order to grant the motion for stay only with regard to the Washtenaw Circuit Court's class certification orders, dated October 29, 2014, and November 21, 2014. As before, on motion of a party or on its own motion, the Court of Appeals may modify, set aside, or place conditions on the stay if it appears that the appeal is not being vigorously prosecuted or if other appropriate grounds appear. In all other respects, the motion for reconsideration is DENIED.
