UPDATE: A video of the ceremony is now available at this link.

The formal investiture ceremony for Christopher M. Goff as Indiana’s 110th Justice will take place on Friday, September 1 at 10:30 a.m. EDT in the Supreme Court Courtroom, on the 3rd floor of the State House. The public is invited to watch a webcast of the ceremony here.

The one-hour ceremony will include remarks from members of the current Indiana Supreme Court. Governor Eric Holcomb will administer the ceremonial oath, and Justice Goff’s official courtroom photograph will be unveiled. A photo gallery of previous swearing-in ceremonies is available online.

In June, Governor Holcomb named Goff to succeed Justice Robert Rucker, who retired from the bench in May. After his appointment, Goff continued his work as Wabash County judge until July. Chief Justice Rush administered a private oath on July 24 to allow Goff to officially begin work as an Indiana Justice prior to the September 1 ceremony.
