A juvenile magistrate is replacing Loretta Rush as the Tippecanoe Superior Court III judge.
Governor Mitch Daniels appointed Faith Graham to fill the opening.
Prior to serving as the juvenile magistrate, she was a Tippecanoe County deputy public defender and an adjunct faculty instructor in the criminal justice program at Ivy Tech.
It’s not known when she will begin her new role.
Rush was sworn in earlier this month as the fifth justice on the Indiana Supreme Court.
