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. My daughters' kids was removed from the home in March 2015, she has been in total compliance with the requirements of cps, she is going to court on the 4th of August. Cps had called the first team meeting last Monday to inform her that she was not in compliance, by not attending home based therapy, which is done normally with the children in the home, and now they are recommending her to have a psych evaluation, and they are also recommending that the children not be returned to the home. This is all bull hockey. In this so called team meeting which I did attend for the best interest of my child and grandbabies, I learned that no matter how much she does that cps is not trying to return the children and the concerns my daughter has is not important to cps, they only told her that she is to do as they say and not to resist or her rights will be terminated. I cant not believe the way Cps treats people knowing if they threaten you with loosing your kids you will do anything to get them back. My daughter is drug free she has never put her hands on any of her children she does not scream at her babies at all, but she is only allowed to see her kids 6 hours a week and someone has to supervise. Lets all tske a stand against the child protection services. THEY CAN NO LONGER TAKE CHILDREN FROM THERE PARENTS.

  2. Planned Parenthood has the government so trained . . .

  3. In a related story, an undercover video team released this footage of the government's search of the Planned Parenthood facilities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXVN7QJ8m88

  4. Here is an excellent movie for those wanting some historical context, as well as encouragement to stand against dominant political forces and knaves who carry the staves of governance to enforce said dominance: http://www.copperheadthemovie.com/

  5. Not enough copperheads here to care anymore, is my guess. Otherwise, a totally pointless gesture. ... Oh wait: was this done because somebody want to avoid bad press - or was it that some weak kneed officials cravenly fear "protest" violence by "urban youths.."
