New Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush will be sworn in today, two weeks after her selection as the state's first female chief justice.

The former Tippecanoe County judge was appointed to the high court by former Governor Mitch Daniels in 2012.

Rush will replace current Chief Justice Brent Dickson, who announced in June that he would step down as chief justice but remain an associate justice.

Governor Mike Pence will administer the oath of office to Rush at the court's Statehouse law library.
