The Indiana Supreme Court granted transfer to two cases, one in which the Indiana Court of Appeals reversed a high school student's convictions of battery and disorderly conduct after an altercation with school officials.

In Christopher Bailey v. State of Indiana, No. 49A02-0801-CR-65, Christopher Bailey's convictions stem from an incident involving the assistant principal and dean of students. After the assistant principal told him to pull up his pants, Bailey bumped into her arm and then threw down his drink and coat, balled his fists, and cursed at the dean.

The Court of Appeals reversed, ruling the state didn't prove Bailey conducted battery because it didn't show that he committed "knowing" battery when he walked into the assistant principal's arm. The appellate court reversed his disorderly conduct conviction because Bailey's behavior wasn't considered "tumultuous conduct" that would result in serious bodily injury or substantial property damage.

The high court also granted transfer to In re: The marriage of Robert Rovai v. Ann Marie Rovai, No. 45A03-0712-CV-600, in which the Court of Appeals found the dissolution court didn't err in failing to award post-judgment interest dating from the entry of the decree of a monetary award to Robert Rovai from Ann Marie Rovai. The appellate court wrote in a footnote that it recognized its analysis of caselaw on the topic "reflects a difficulty, if not an inability, to completely reconcile the various holdings." The appellate court also affirmed the court's decision of conditioning payment of the monetary judgment to Robert on any of three occurrences - that both children become emancipated, Ann Marie voluntarily sells the marital home awarded to her, or she marries or lives with someone else in the home. The trial court also didn't err in apportioning federal and state tax refunds for three years according to the respective income of the parties for the particular year.
