Ind. Courts - "Two states — Idaho and Indiana — have no women on their highest courts"

That is the word via this May 14, 2009 story out of South Carolina.

This ILB entry from Oct. 6, 2007 is headed "Few women in Indiana are appointed to high judiciary posts."

Here is a list of four ILB entries from the fall of 2007, all under the heading "Indiana Supreme Court only Supreme Court in Nation with No Women Members," all reporting the concern at the time in Idaho that it would join Indiana to become one of just two states with no women on its high court. Idaho did end up with a woman justice, but Nevada more recently has joined Indiana.

This ILB entry, from Feb. 14, 2006, encapsulates the history of race and gender diversity on our Supreme Court.
