On Wednesday, August 21, the Judicial Nominating Commission voted to reappoint Loretta Rush as Indiana’s Chief Justice. All current Supreme Court Justices—Steven David, Mark Massa, Geoffrey Slaughter, and Christopher Goff—reflected on the attributes important in a Chief Justice and told the Commission Chief Justice Rush should remain the judicial branch leader. Rush was appointed to the high court in 2012 and was first selected as Chief Justice in 2014. During the past five years, she has overseen the development of statewide e-filing, the continued implementation of a state case management system, the certification of over 100 problem-solving courts, the creation of commercial courts, and led the judiciary’s response to the addictions crisis. Her outreach efforts include taking the Court on the road (including back to its first courtroom in the original state capital) and providing extensive training for judges and court staff.
