For the first time in state history, Indiana has a female Supreme Court chief justice.
Loretta Rush, who was appointed to the high court in 2012 by Governor Mike Pence, was sworn in as chief justice Monday. The Evansville Courier and Press reports the ceremony took place inside the Supreme Court law library at the Indiana Statehouse.
Rush takes over for chief justice Brent Dickson, who will remain as an associate justice.
