The newest Indiana Supreme Court justice is from Tippecanoe County.
Governor Mitch Daniels chose Loretta Rush after a round of interviews that also included Indianapolis attorney Geoffrey Slaughter and Hamilton County Judge Steven Nation.
Rush presides over Tippecanoe Superior Court Three, which is the juvenile and family court.
She has been in that position for 14-years. She practiced law in Lafayette for 15-years before that.
Rush replaces Frank Sullivan, who retired at the end of July.
