How do I get permanent marker out of leather?

Permanent Marker Stain Removal from Leather Upholstery

An effective way to remove the ink stains on leather furniture is by using either hair spray or Armor All. Just spray the stain, then wipe it with a soft cloth. Be sure to test in an inconspicuous area first.

Unfortunately, it is not called "permanent" marker for no reason, and depending on how fresh the stain is, this may not remove the stain completely and you may be stuck with the stain.

I tried Armor All and it had no effect at all. Insurance claim now pending.

To remove permanent marker on a white board you go over it with a dry erase marker and it comes off. Not sure if this method works on other surfaces but maybe try it with an item similar to leather.
