The Indiana Supreme Court will hear two cases presented for consideration last week, and justices denied transfer for 20 other cases.

The court agreed to hear appeals in Michael D. Perkinson, Jr. v. Kay Char Perkinson, 36S05-1206-DR-371, and Lisa J. Kane v. State of Indiana, 30S04-1206-CR-372, according to transfer actions for the week ending June 29 and posted Monday.

In Perkinson, the Indiana Court of Appeals reversed and remanded to the Jackson Superior Court the trial court’s denial of the father’s motion to correct error and its underlying denial of his petition for modification of parenting time.

In Kane, the high court will review a divided Court of Appeals ruling that affirmed a Hancock Superior Court conviction of Class D felony receiving stolen property. The panel was divided over whether defective jury instruction constituted a reversible error.
