Official robing ceremony held for newest state Supreme Court justice
Loretta Rush has been formally sworn in as the 108th justice of the Indiana Supreme Court.
A public robing ceremony was held at the statehouse this morning.
The former Tippecanoe Superior Court 3 judge has been performing her new duties since November 7th, when the official oath was administered.
Rush says the lessons learned during her time as a juvenile court judge have prepared her well for serving the state as a Supreme Court justice.
Rush is just the second woman to serve on the state Supreme Court.
Governor Mitch Daniels named her to succeed Justice Frank Sullivan, Jr., who stepped down from the bench earlier this year.
