On Friday, September 14th, Governor Davis appointed Tippecanoe Superior Judge Loretta Rush as Indiana’s 108th Supreme Court justice. Rush becomes the second woman to serve on the high court since Myra Selby who served from 1995 to 1999.
Rush is Governor Daniels’ third appointment to the five-member panel, having previously named justices Steven David to fill the vacancy created by the retired Justice Ted Boehm and Mark Massa to succeed former Chief Justice Randall Shepard, who stepped down this year. Rush will replace Sullivan, who retired from the court July 31, 2012 to teach at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
