RANDY PATTERSON, Plaintiff,
ATTORNEY GRIEVANCE COMMISSION, Defendant
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 complaint for superintending control is considered. Because the Attorney Grievance Commission did not sufficiently communicate the basis for its decision, we DIRECT it to provide a supplemental response, within 28 days of the date of this order, in support of its decision to close AGC File No. 0031-13, specifically explaining why it found that respondent attorney did not commit misconduct when the property at issue was sold based on an appraisal that did not include evaluation of the gas and mineral rights on the property. The supplemental answer will be considered part of the AGC file and held confidential pursuant to MCR 9.126.
The complaint for superintending control remains pending.
