Indiana Chief Justice Decision Coming Today
Wednesday, August 21, 2019

An Indiana state board is set to decide whether or not to keep Indiana’s first female chief justice as leader of the state’s highest court.

Chief Justice Loretta Rush is seeking a new five-year term in the position she has held since 2014. In a vote scheduled for today, The Judicial Nominating Commission will vote after hearing from Rush and the four other Indiana Supreme Court justices.

Rush, now age 61, was appointed as a justice by Governor Mitch Daniels back in 2012 after 14 years as a Tippecanoe County judge in Lafayette. The chief justice is selected from among the court’s five members.
