Hoosier chief justice gives Indiana leading role in opioid fight
October 23, 2017
Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush has been selected to lead a task force of state court officials examining the justice system’s role in combating the nation’s opioid crisis.
The task force will begin meeting in November, giving important audience to state and national experts on what is and isn’t working in opioid abuse prevention. It’s also hoped the task force efforts could bolster partnerships that focus specifically on the impact of opioids on children, foster children and families.
