Indianapolis, Ind. — Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP is proud to announce that Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush will serve as the 2014 BGD Legislative Conference distinguished keynote speaker at the Indiana Convention Center on Dec. 4, 2014.

Chief Justice Rush was appointed to the Indiana Supreme Court by Governor Mitch Daniels in September 2012, and took the oath of office as Indiana's 108th Supreme Court Justice on Nov. 7, 2012. She became Chief Justice on Aug. 18, 2014.

“We are thrilled to have Chief Justice Loretta Rush as our distinguished keynote speaker,” said BGD Managing Partner Tobin McClamroch. “For the first time ever, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from both the sitting Governor and the Chief Justice at the same conference. We expect it to be a great unofficial start to the legislative session.”

As in years past, the 23rd annual conference will serve as a non-partisan venue that brings together Indiana decision makers, thought leaders, policy analysts and engaged public servants to discuss upcoming issues that are important to Hoosiers before the General Assembly convenes.
