Rush is the first female justice since Myra Selby stepped down in 1999 after five years on the court.

She is the third justice Daniels has appointed to the five-member court in the past two years. She replaces Justice Frank Sullivan, who stepped down after 19 years on the court.

The 54-year-old Pennsylvania native says she puts an emphasis on the needs of children. In 1998, she survived an attack by a former juvenile client who invaded her home and tried to kill her husband.
