Ind. Courts - Investiture ceremony for Justice Slaughter Thursday, August 11

From the news release:

The investiture ceremony for Geoffrey G. Slaughter as Indiana's 109th Justice will take place on Thursday, August 11 at 1:00 p.m. EDT in the Supreme Court Courtroom, on the 3rd floor of the State House. The public is invited to watch a webcast of the ceremony at courts.in.gov.

The one-hour ceremony will include remarks from United States Magistrate Judge Debra McVicker Lynch of the Southern District of Indiana. Chief Justice Loretta Rush will administer the ceremonial oath, and Justice Slaughter's official courtroom photograph will be unveiled. A photo gallery of previous swearing-in ceremonies is available online.

In May, Governor Mike Pence named Slaughter to succeed Justice Brent Dickson, who retired from the bench in April. After his appointment, Slaughter continued his work at an Indianapolis law firm until June. Chief Justice Rush administered a private oath on June 13 to allow Slaughter to officially begin work as an Indiana Justice prior to the August 11 ceremony.
