PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN, Plaintiff-Appellee,
FUAD FAROUK SHEENA, Defendant-Appellant
COA: 309522. Oakland CC: 2011-237051-FC.
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 February 18, 2014 judgment 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 Oakland Circuit Court for an evidentiary hearing, pursuant to People v Ginther,
390 Mich. 436; 212 N.W.2d 922 (1973), to determine whether
the defendant was deprived of his right to the effective assistance of trial
counsel based on counsel's failure to pursue an insanity defense. In all other
respects, leave to appeal is DENIED, because we are not persuaded that the
questions presented should be reviewed by this Court.
