New justice to join court in November

September 24, 2012

Indiana’s first female Supreme Court justice since 1999 says she expects to formally join the state’s highest court in early November. Loretta Rush, of Lafayette, was named to the court Sept. 14 by Gov. Mitch Daniels to fill a vacancy left when Justice Frank E. Sullivan Jr. retired in July to teach law. Rush, 54, plans to remain in Lafayette and commute daily to Indianapolis.
