[SUPREME] Loretta Rush Selected As Indiana Chief Justice
Start Date: 8/6/2014 All Day
End Date: 8/6/2014
Entry Description

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.  Detailed information on the 7-member Commission and the selection process for Indiana’s Chief Justice can be found online at http://courts.in.gov/jud-qual/2920.htm.

Today, the Commission interviewed each Justice in a meeting open to the public and press.  Photographs of each Justice speaking with the Commission can be found at https://flic.kr/s/aHsjZSWCVC.  At approximately 2:30 p.m. the Commission went into an executive session for discussion.  Following the executive session, at approximately 3:50 p.m. the Commission convened in a public session to vote on its selection of Indiana’s next Chief Justice.

Media can obtain biographical information and a high resolution photograph of Justice Rush at http://courts.in.gov/supreme/2332.htm.
