Indianapolis (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Governor Mitch Daniels has chosen Tippecanoe County Judge Loretta Rush to fill a vacancy on the State Supreme Court.

Indiana is currently one of just two states without a woman on the Supreme Court and hasn't had one for 13 years.

Loretta Rush was the only woman finalist but she also has strong credentials as an attorney in private practice and a juvenile court judge in Lafayette for 14 years.
