Indiana Supreme Court Justice Loretta Rush’s formal robing ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 28 in the Supreme Court Courtroom at the Statehouse.
The ceremony will include remarks from Gov. Mitch Daniels, former Justice Myra Selby, Allen Superior Judge Charles Pratt and Dr. Will Miller, the Supreme Court said in a news release Wednesday. The event will be webcast at www.courts.in.gov.
Rush, who formerly presided over a Tippecanoe Superior Court, was sworn in by Chief Justice Brent Dickson during a private ceremony Nov. 7. Daniels in September selected Rush to succeed Justice Frank Sullivan, who retired from the bench in August to join the faculty of the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis.
Rush is Indiana’s 108th Supreme Court justice. She is the second woman to serve on Indiana’s Supreme Court after Selby, the 103rd justice, who was appointed in 1995 and served until 1999.
