INDIANAPOLIS -

Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush says the common concern among top elected officials regarding the state's court system is addressing the opioid crisis. During her 2018 State of the Judiciary address, Rush said Hoosier courts handled more than 1.3 million cases last year and are "firmly poised to meet future challenges."

When it comes to taking on the opioid epidemic, Rush said there's only one response. "Together, we must do everything," she said. "This is a situation where well-reasoned, evidence-based judicial interventions can get people to treatment, give consequences, cut the supply, support families, and save lives."

Rush's speech also included discussion on adoption cases, a major judicial branch reorganization, expanded and improved technology and more rigorous training. In closing, she said "I stand before you with confidence that your courts are ready to meet the challenges ahead. The state of your judiciary is strong, and we are filled with hope for the future."
