Thursday’s one-hour ceremony for Justice Geoffrey Slaughter will take place in the Supreme Court’s courtroom at the Statehouse in Indianapolis and include remarks from federal Magistrate Judge Debra McVicker Lynch.

Chief Justice Loretta Rush will administer the ceremonial oath during the event, at which Slaughter’s official courtroom photograph will be unveiled. The ceremony will be webcast at .
