On Wednesday the Indiana Judicial Nominating Commission voted to select Loretta Rush as Indiana’s next Chief Justice.  Loretta Rush is expected to take office later this month when Chief Justice Brent Dickson steps down as Chief Justice.  Dickson will remain on the Supreme Court as an Associate Justice. 

The Commission made its selection for Chief Justice from among the other current Justices: Robert Rucker, Steven David, Mark Massa and Loretta Rush.

Rush was appointed to the state's highest court in 2012 by then Governor Mitch Daniels.
