Ind. Courts - "Rush a favorite to be new chief justice"

That is the headline to Dave Bangert's Sunday column in the Lafayette Journal Courier. The column begins:

This will be a big week for Supreme Court Justice Loretta Rush, who could become the first woman named Indiana’s chief justice.

On Wednesday afternoon, a seven-member panel will interview justices Rush, Mark Massa, Steven David and Robert Rucker during public sessions at the Statehouse to pick a replacement for Chief Justice Brent Dickson. Dickson, a Purdue University graduate who practiced law in Lafayette, is stepping down as chief justice but will stay on the court.

It’s been two years since Rush, former Tippecanoe County juvenile court judge and still a Lafayette resident, was named to the state’s high court. She’s the second woman to serve as an Indiana Supreme Court justice.
