In her address to the Economic Club of Michiana’s members and guests, Rush explained the role of courts as engines of economic prosperity, the courts role in being promoters of public safety, and with regards to their role on healthy families and children.

“We look at courts. We look at over the million cases that are filed in Indiana Courts each year. Business disputes, family disputes, criminal disputes, and that it’s vitally connected to what’s going on in the community. So courts being free, efficient, public dispute resolution providers is just important,” said Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush.
