Prior to being nominated to the state Supreme Court, Loretta Rush served as a judge for Tippecanoe County's Superior Court 3.

Tippecanoe County Superior Court judge Loretta Rush was officially sworn in as the 108th Supreme Court Justice in Indiana history Wednesday.

Rush becomes only the second woman ever to sit on the state’s highest court. She is Governor Mitch Daniels’ third appointment to the bench. Daniels previously appointed Steven David and Mark Massa.

Rush begins her work on the court immediately and her first oral arguments are scheduled for Nov. 21. Rush’s oath was administered by Chief Justice Brent Dickson in a private ceremony Tuesday. Her public swearing-in is set for late December.
