OPINIONS OF THE SUPREME COURT
FILED Wednesday, April 1, 2020
NOTICE - MEDIA RELEASE TIME IS 10:00 A.M.
State of Minnesota, Appellant, vs. Jennifer Ann Culver, Respondent.
Court of Appeals.
1. The phrase “where the action manifests an intent substantially to deprive that parent of rights to parenting time” in Minn. Stat. § 609.26, subd. 1(3) (2018), creates an objective standard that focuses on the nature of the defendant’s action, rather than the defendant’s subjective intent.
2. Even if the circumstantial-evidence standard applies in this case, respondent is not entitled to relief because the only reasonable inference that can be drawn from the circumstances proved is that respondent’s actions, when viewed objectively, manifest an intent to substantially deprive her child’s father of court-ordered parenting time.
Reversed and remanded. Justice G. Barry Anderson.
Medline Industries, Inc., Relator, vs. County of Hennepin, Respondent.
The tax court’s valuation of a distribution-warehouse property was not clearly erroneous.
Affirmed. Justice David L. Lillehaug.
State of Minnesota, Respondent, vs. Edward Martin, Appellant.
Court of Appeals.
Under Minn. Stat. § 243.166, subd. 1b(b) (2012), a person is required to register as a predatory offender when an out of state conviction would be a violation of a Minnesota statute listed in paragraph (a) of that subdivision. Respondent failed to prove that appellant was required to register as a predatory offender because of his 1992 California conviction for sexual battery.
Reversed. Justice Paul C. Thissen.
In re Petition for Disciplinary against D. Gregory Mulligan, a Minnesota Attorney, Registration No. 0203592.
Conditionally reinstated and placed on probation for 2 years. Justice David L. Lillehaug.
Lillian S. Jensen, Respondent, vs. Donnelly Custom Manufacturing Co. and TRIFAC Workers’ Compensation Fund, administered by
Meadowbrook Insurance Group, Relators, and Douglas County Hospital, HealthPartners, CentraCare St. Cloud Hospital, and
Anesthesia Associates of St. Cloud, Intervenors.
Workers’ Compensation Court of Appeals.
Affirmed without opinion. Justice Paul C. Thissen.
