Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Justice Loretta Rush is poised to take a leading position on matters of juvenile law and head a proposed Indiana Commission on Children, according to an order of the Indiana Supreme Court issued Tuesday.

Rush, who was sworn in during a private ceremony Nov. 7, will serve as the court’s liaison to the Juvenile Justice Improvement Committee and Problem Solving Courts Committee of the Judicial Conference, according to the assignment of judicial duties contained in the order. Rush also will lead the State Board of Law Examiners.

Chief Justice Brent Dickson will remain the court liaison to the Division of Supreme Court Administration and Division of State Court Administration and the Indiana Judicial Center. He also will continue to chair the commissions on Judicial Nomination and Judicial Qualifications.

The order redistributes liaison and chair positions to the agencies, boards, commissions and task forces under Indiana Supreme Court Administrative Rule 4(B).

Responsibilities of remaining justices are as follows:

Justice Steven David: Chair of the Records Management Committee and liaison to the Disciplinary Commission and to the Strategic Planning Committee and Education Committee of the Judicial Conference.

Justice Mark Massa: Chair of the Judicial Technology and Automation Committee and liaison for appellate court and agency technology oversight.

Justice Robert Rucker: Chair of the Task Force on Access by Persons with Limited English Proficiency and liaison to the Commission for Continuing Legal Education and the Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program.

The order is the first redesignation of responsibilities to a full court since the departure of former Chief Justice Randall Shepard and former Justice Frank Sullivan.

Rush’s formal, public swearing in ceremony will be Dec. 28.

  1. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
