Loretta Rush Selected As Indiana Chief Justice

Posted:


On Wednesday, August 6, the Judicial Nominating Commission voted to select Loretta Rush as Indiana's next Chief Justice.  Loretta Rush is expected to take office later this month when Chief Justice Brent Dickson steps down as Chief Justice.  Dickson will remain on the Supreme Court as an Associate Justice. 

The Commission made its selection for Chief Justice from among the other current Justices: Robert Rucker, Steven David, Mark Massa and Loretta Rush. The Commission recruits candidates for appellate level judicial positions and also appoints Indiana's Chief Justice.

“I offer my sincerest congratulations to Justice Loretta Rush on being unanimously selected to be the new Chief Justice of Indiana." Gov. Mike Pence said in a statement. "With this selection, the Judicial Nominating Commission has made history and ensured that Indiana's Supreme Court will continue to have outstanding leadership in the years ahead. With her extensive legal experience, proven character and commitment to public service, I am confident that Chief Justice Rush will serve our judiciary and our state with distinction."
