English term or phrase: senior judge
In a petition for dissolution of marriage: You are hereby notified that the undersigned will bring on a final hearing for a dissolution of marriage for hearing before the honorable Senior Judge, one of the judges of the above-styled Court ...

N.B. I found "doyen des juges" in the dictionary but in my experience there can be more than one senior judge, it is not necessarily the oldes judge. In the US fed cts a judge can take "senior status" at age 70 and have a reduced case load. I was thinking of something like "à la pré-retraite".
