Todd Rokita Sworn In As Indiana's 44th Attorney General

On Monday, Rokita reiterated his commitment to promoting liberty in all ways.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Indiana has a new Attorney General.

Todd Rokita was sworn in today at the Indiana State Museum. Rokita, a Munster native, was elected in November, garnering the highest vote total for a statewide elected official in Indiana history.

On Monday, Rokita reiterated his commitment to promoting liberty in all ways.

“But preserving our liberty requires more than speeches and promise,” said Rokita. “It demands real, on the ground work and attention – from all of us. In my administration you can expect our team to put liberty in action ever single day.”

As Attorney General, Rokita will serve as the state’s top lawyer and will represent Indiana in settlements and in defense of laws passed by the General Assembly. He replaces Curtis Hill, who served as AG from 2017 to 2021.

Earlier today, Attorney General Rokita swore in the Deputy Attorneys General in a video call conducted remotely. Attorney General Rokita previously announced the leadership of former Inspector General, Lori Torres, as Chief Deputy Attorney General and Chief of Staff and Larry Hopkins as Chief Administrative Officer.

"I'm pleased to have such a strong team of public servants in place to work for the people of Indiana. We have an important mission ahead of us and the right people in place to do that work," said Attorney General Rokita.
