Brittany Tyner of WLFI Lafayette reports:

A Tippecanoe County judge will soon be the newest member of the Indiana Supreme Court.

Greater Lafayette Commerce hosted a reception to recognize Judge Loretta Rush for her services to the youth in Tippecanoe County. Rush as served as a juvenile court judge in Lafayette for 14 years.

Last month, Judge Rush was named by Governor Daniels to serve as the 108th justice on the Indiana Supreme Court. She will be the first women to sit on the bench since 1999.

She said this isn't something she has always dreamed of, but she's excited to accept the challenge.

"It's been a tough couple of weeks saying goodbye to some of the families I've worked with for a long period of time so I liked my job but I'm excited about my new job," said Rush.

Judge Rush's last day as Tippecanoe County judge will be November 6. She will take her spot on the Indiana Supreme Court the next day.

ILB: According to the Court's calendar, incoming Justice Rush will have some time to get acclimated before hearing her first oral arguments. The Court will hear two oral agruments on Nov. 1st, but then nothing until Wednesday, Nov. 21st. On that day the Court will hear three oral arguments, the first being Meridith v. Daniels, the school voucher case.
