INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush addressed ongoing judicial initiatives and recognized local court and law enforcement officials Wednesday during the annual State of the Judiciary at the Statehouse.

Speaking to a packed House chambers, Rush began by recognizing current Supreme Court Justices Geoffrey Slaughter, the court’s newest appointee, and Robert Rucker, who is set to retire this year, before moving on to less decorated but no less impactful attendees.

Those officials – court and law enforcement representatives from across the state – were the focal point of the majority of Rush’s speech, which led to lengthy dedications and ovations to those seated prominently above the House floor.
